How to Watch AMFS Virtual Events

There are many options for watching our virtual events on your devices or, through them, on your TV. For the best visual and auditory experience we recommend connecting or "casting" the streams to your TV system.

Here we offer some guidance on where and how to access our events, and how to view them on the most common TV systems.

Where can I find the streams of the Virtual Festival events?
You can access our virtual events from the following webpages:
AMFS YouTube channel
- AMFS Facebook page

Direct links to each event will be on the events listings on the online calendar and on the Virtual Festival page before the event.

On what devices can I play the streams?
You can stream from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Can I watch the streams on my TV?
Yes. There are several ways to do this:

If you have a smart TV you can access our YouTube channel directly from the TV using the TV’s built-in YouTube application.

If you are connecting with a Smartphone (iPhone or Android) or iPad you can “cast” wirelessly to your TV. Common casting devices are Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon FireTV, and Roku. 

  • How to watch via Apple TV:
    If you have Apple TV, once you start the video stream on your device, tap the airplay icon and choose your Apple TV or AirPlay 2-compatible smart TV. Find more information on Apple TV casting here.

Can I play the concerts on my non-TV stereo system?
There are a wide variety of ways to connect to a non-TV stereo system depending on its technology. All require cables for inputs, most commonly an HDMI cable. We recommend you ask for the right cable for your system at a store where cables are sold or search your exact system model specifications before purchasing.
