We time our channel to cut off and you to reestablish connection after 2 hours. Just streaming the signal cost EWTN lots of money and if no one is watching it still cost. Consider helping EWTN with a donation.

Your TV needs to have either an HDMI input or a composite input ( RCA input).

You can, but we do not recommend using any online streaming service to watch EWTN. Amazon Fire TV will use 1 - 5 gig an hour depending on your resolution / compression.
