Screening it on your TV
Most TVs have an HDMI socket in the back. Most computers also have an HMDI output socket, otherwise you need an adapter plug (usually a USB-C to HDMI). An adapter plug will also allow you to connect your iPad or iPhone via the HDMI cable (a Lightning to HDMI Converter). Then you can load our Online Festival page on your computer and play the shows through the better quality image and sound of the TV.
Once you connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable, then select the right HDMI input with your TV remote, and then load the page on your computer and start viewing.
You can also stream it wirelessly to a smart tv/apple tv/chromecast via bluetooth (more info here).
NOTE: for the sound to come through the TV you sometimes need to connect your computer before loading the Vimeo page. Otherwise go to settings > sound > output – and change it from ‘computer’ to ‘TV’.
