Watching on your TV

Watching performances on your TV

We are excited to offer a variety of digital content available to our patrons online.  It's definitely OK to watch any of our performances on your computer or tablet - many of these devices have excellent sound and picture. However, there are several ways you can watch these performances on your TV if you would prefer.  We have outlined a few different ways to do so. 

Our instructions may require you to log into your Seattle Opera My Account page to access your videos and that you have an internet connection and a smart TV or streaming device attached to your TV (Roku, Fire Stick, Apple TV, etc.). We have provided step-by-step instructions to help you. While we have tried to be as comprehsive as possible with our instructions, there are many variables with technology and we can't guarantee that this will work on all combinations. 

Using an email link to access video

If you would like to access a video using a link sent via email from Seattle Opera (applies to Subscriber Early Access Days and public recitals) you have two options. The first is to cast from your device via the YouTube app or website to your Smart TV. The second is to "like" a video in your YouTube account and access it via your Smart TV.

"Like" a video

Logging into "My Account" & purchased Streams

When you log into your account and access the video from My Digital Content  press play. If you see Apple Airplay Icon or Casting Icon appear on the video player, you will be able to cast your video to your TV. If neither appear on the video player than you will need to mirror the performance from your computer to your TV which will need to be done from a computer with blutooth capabilities. 

Read Instructions


You may also be able to plug your laptop into your TV directly. Please refer to the instruction manual for your TV or laptop for more information.
