For the first time, the October general conference was broadcast nationally in Brazil and Mexico on national television stations. In fact, it was broadcast on a public television or radio station in more than 50 countries, up from 30 countries for the April general conference.
As President Russell M. Nelson began the first session of the October 2020 general conference, he noted, “General conference last April was viewed by more people than any preceding it, and we have every expectation that will happen again.”
Members of the Church live in 196 nations and territories, and general conference is available in 100 languages.
