Virtual Viewing Tips: How to enjoy our live streamed concerts on your TV

Image Picker for Section 0

Q: Where can I find the livestream concert link?

A: If you have signed up for a virtual ticket (if not, click here), you will receive a concert link in your email inbox no later than the day of the event.

Note: Our virtual concerts are low cost and donor supported. As such, the concerts will be streamed in 720p video to accommodate varying Wi-Fi speeds and device models, and to ensure the best possible audio quality for a live concert experience within a home environment.

General Viewing Tips

  • If possible, use an Ethernet cable for your internet connection to ensure the best AV quality

  • Test your TV’s audio and video quality a few days prior to the concert day to make sure everything is set up correctly

  • Set the computer/smart device as close as possible to the router if using Wi-Fi

  • Try not to use any other Wi-Fi devices in your home during the concert for the best AV quality

  • Contact your service provider, as some companies are currently offering faster Wi-Fi speeds 

  • Click the link you receive by email 15 minutes prior to the start of the concert to get connected, and then test your WiFi, sound and video with our pre-concert video loop

  • To enjoy the event in full screen, click the icon at the bottom right corner of the screen

  • We are recording the event in real time with a digital video recorder (DVR), so you will be able to pause the event or go back to an earlier point in the event if you missed it. The DVR will stay active for 30 minutes after the event so you can enjoy the full concert.

Smart and Regular TVs

Q: How can I watch the concert on my regular or smart TV? 

  • If your computer has an HDMI port, obtain an HDMI cable and connect your computer to the TV manually. Here's an option for HDMI cable 

  • If your computer does not have a HDMI port, purchase an HDMI adapter that works for your computer’s ports

    • Click here to view options for an HDMI adapter for Apple products 

    • Click here to view options for USB-C to HDMI adapters

    • For other options, click here

  • Most modern TVs have an HDMI port. If your regular TV does not have an HDMI port, you can try to connect your TV some other ways (via a VGA cable, etc.) 

    •  Click here to view options for an HDMI (computer) to VGA (TV) adapter

  • HDMI cables usually transmit audio automatically. If your TV has no audio after connecting to the HDMI cable:

      • For an Apple Computer, click on the Apple icon on the top left corner, tap System Preferences, and tap Sound. Then, under Output, select your TV. The sound should play on that TV.

      • If you have a different computer, the directions will vary. Go to your computer’s audio settings, find the "external device" or "audio output" option, and select your TV’s name or “HDMI" (whichever appears).

      • After the concert, remember to reselect your computer’s internal/built-in speaker.
