  • The General Conference Sessions are always held at the same times on the first weekend of both April and October: 10:00 – 12:00 and 2:00 – 4:00 Mountain time on both Saturday and Sunday 6:00 – 8:00 Mountain time Saturday for Priesthood Session. All of these can be seen at a local church if it has a satellite dish. Where you have multiple LDS churches in and area, this will mean stake centers or district centers. If there is only one church building it will usually have one. Additionally, there are other ways to get it. If you have a digital satellite dish then you may also get BYU TV depending on the package you have. BYU TV broadcasts the four general sessions. The general cessions may also be broadcast on one of your cable systems public access stations. Finally there are a number of places on the internet where you can get the general sessions. http://www.lds.org/broadcast/gc/0,5161,8046,00.html gives a list of Church sponsored websites where you can get both streaming video and audio of the conference in a variety of languages and www.ksl.com will also have an audio stream of the sessions. If the live times are not convenient for you, then BYU Broadcasting will also offer a number of rebroadcast of the general sessions (http://www.byub.org/generalconf/rebroadcast.asp). Finally there is one last thing to keep in mind. It is only the General Sessions that are broadcast via these alternate sources. The Priesthood Session is only available at the church building or if you have one of the BIG satellite dishes and can receive the Church's primary feed.
  • Since the sessions are over by now, I thought I'd add that within a week the transcripts will be available on http://www.lds.org . The May and November issues of the Ensign and Liahona magazines carry full transcripts.
  • Since General Conference has rolled around again, I figured I’d bump this with a little bit of additional information. First of all, note that when Glenn says “the first weekend,” he means “the weekend including the first Sunday.” So if the first of the month happens to fall on a Sunday, General Conference will actually begin on the last day of the preceding month. Secondly, BYU-TV has changed its web site. You can now watch streaming video (including a live feed) at http://www.byu.tv .
  • General sessions are Saturday and Sunday at 10 am and 2 pm mountain time. The priesthood session is Saturday at 6 pm. Check your local listings - Dish Network and Direct TV both carry it, as do many cable operators. You can view it live at most Stake Centers and many general chapels via satellite feed. Also, streaming video and audio of the conference are available via live feed at www.lds.org. This is the best bet if you need a language that isn't carried in a chapel feed or home TV. (Chapel feeds would be in English, with extra feeds for additional languages spoken by local congregations).
