With most Latter-day Saint families stuck inside this General Conference weekend, BYUtv is stepping up to help. With a special General Conference lineup of movies and shows, families can invite the spirit, be entertained, and enjoy quality time together for free.
“When President Nelson announced that this Conference ‘would not only be memorable, but unforgettable,’ our programming staff set about to likewise make the entire Conference weekend unforgettable,” said Michael Dunn, managing director of BYUtv. “When we planned this lineup months ago, little did we know what a gift these programs of inspiration would be in the midst of this worldwide crisis. So in addition to carrying all five sessions of Conference in HD, we have lined up what may be the most robust 48 hours of television in BYUtv history. Families of all kinds will come together for Conference, but also be treated to movies, series premieres and specials before, between and after sessions. We’re focused on engaging viewing experiences which will inspire and bring joy and hope to families in this difficult time.”
