How to Watch

1. Watch NOW on the web at “TV 24/7” or “LIVE STREAMS”.
To watch the television feed of The FLORIDA Channel (which is available year-round, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week), simply click on the “TV 24/7” tab under today’s schedule or click the play icon on the viewer/player that’s located on the home page.

To watch the day’s LIVE events (i.e., committee meetings, floor sessions, public hearings), click on the “LIVE STREAMS” tab under today’s schedule to select what you want to watch.

Our “LIVE STREAMS” events are listed by time and title. Look for the “Watch Now” link for events currently available for viewing.

Events listed under the “LIVE STREAMS” schedule will begin streaming 10 minutes prior to their scheduled start times. Audio will be available when the events officially convene.

2. Watch on your mobile device or smart phone.
Watch The FLORIDA Channel programming on your mobile Apple or Android device by downloading the free mobile app at the iTUNES Store or Google Play.

3. Watch on Roku.
The best way to add new channels is from the Channel Store on your Roku player. To use Channel Search, simply scroll down to “Streaming Channels” in the main menu, and select it to enter the Channel Store.

Once in the channel store, scroll down again to find the Search Channels menu item and select it. You will then enter the familiar typing grid, and you can simply use your remote to begin typing “The Florida Channel”.

Just as with Roku Search, as soon as enough letters are recognized, your search result options will appear to the right where you can scroll over and select them.

After you select the matching result, you are now in the Channel Detail View, where you can go ahead and “Add Channel”, so that The Florida Channel will install and show up on your Home screen.

Alternatively, if you have already created a personalized account on Roku.com, you can login to that account and add the Florida Channel by clicking: http://owner.roku.com/5TMHT6M
