Smart TV compatibility with a PBS Station Event largely depends on the model of your smart TV.
Certain models will allow streaming without any issues; however others might not, which is why we recommend watching a VYE event on a computer, laptop, or tablet.
Unfortunately, due to the sheer number and variations of smart TVs and smart TV software, we are not able to individually troubleshoot issues.
To stream on a smart TV, use the TV’s browser to visit vye.live, visit the page for your event, log in, and watch the stream just like on your computer or tablet.
As an alternative to your TV’s default browser, you can also try the Puffin TV browser app, which may work in cases where your TV’s default browser does not work. Of course, you would need to have a TV that supports the installation of new apps to install Puffin TV.
Please note that Samsung’s Internet TV browser does not support streaming video. Please use a streaming device or airplay if available.
Additionally, by using an add-on product, such as AppleTV, Chromecast, or Amazon’s Fire Stick, you may be able to access the event without a Smart TV. Likewise, you would use the device’s browser to visit vye.live, visit the page for your event, log in, and watch the stream just like on your computer or tablet.
Some streams may have the option to “Cast” to a Chromecast device, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee that be the case.
Finally, if your computer has an HDMI output, you can run a cable from your computer to your TV.
