There are multiple ways to view the virtual performance on a TV (see below), though most require access to a web browser, and therefore, an internet connection.
We recommend testing your preferred method with your access link prior to the start of the livestream for a stress-free viewing experience – you can test this anytime and you will see a countdown timer up until the livestream begins on concert day.
For instruction on how to stream to your TV, see device specifics below:
Laptop with an HDMI cable: To connect a laptop to a TV with HDMI, just plug an HDMI cable into the HDMI port on each of the devices. If you purchased your television within the last ten years, chances are very good it has an HDMI port. If your laptop doesn’t have an HDMI port, you’ll need an adapter.
Apple TV/Airplay: You must use an Apple device (iPhone, iPad, Mac computer) to connect to your Apple TV.
First, it is recommended that you open and begin watching the video on your selected Apple device. Then, open and log in to Apple TV on your TV.
Make sure both your Apple devices are on the same WiFi network, and then click the airplay icon.
Depending on your device, the airplay icon may appear in a different location. If you don’t see the icon, try maximizing the video screen. See screenshots below for examples. Once you’ve tapped the airplay icon, select your Apple TV device. If an AirPlay passcode appears on your TV screen, enter the passcode on your device when prompted.

Smart TV: If your TV has a web browser app, it is recommended to log into your email account first on your TV. Next, open the email containing your show specific link and click the button link to watch. This should open a new window, pulling in your unique access code and the video player. The video should start automatically, if not, click play.
