Livestream Events

TCAN Livestream Events offer you an opportunity to stay connected to TCAN performing artists, in the comfort of your home, while live performances on our stage are not possible. Anyone can watch live, and many of the events will be recorded for future viewing. It is free to tune in, but please keep in mind that making a contribution will support the artists and TCAN.

Performing artists use a number of different websites to deliver livestreams, but most of them use Facebook Live or YouTube. Once you select a livestream on our website calendar listing, our ticketing button will take you directly to the livestream to view the event. Below is a donation link for you to directly support the artists.

Detailed instructions for viewing the livestream will be found on the livestream page, but here are some tips for viewing livestreams at home. Please be sure to test your setup BEFORE starting the livestream so you can enjoy it the way you prefer.

Home Computer, Smartphone and Tablet
Just about every platform makes it easy to see Facebook Live or YouTube on an internet browser, an iPhone or Android smartphone, or a tablet like an iPad or Kindle with an internet browser. 
Google Chromecast and AppleTV
These devices allow you to start the livestream on your phone, tablet or laptop and then “stream” it wirelessly to watch it on your big screen TV. Cool! This is NOT complicated – but since these devices function a little bit differently, you should experiment with this setup before starting the livestream. It’s important to remember that all streaming solutions require your personal device, and streaming device, to be connected to the same WiFi network.
Amazon Firestick
This device is installed to your TV using one of its HDMI ports, and allows you to connect to your home wireless network. Once you activate your Firestick, you can go to the APPS menu and download a web browser called SILK. Once you open the web browser, type in the link associated with the film you purchased and enjoy.
Roku Media Player
Roku streaming devices support a feature called Screen Mirroring, which you can activate in the Settings menu. You’ll also need to download and install the Roku app on your phone or other personal device. Once the Roku app is installed, you can access the movie on your phone, tablet or similar device then look for the “Cast” icon on the screen of your device. Just click on this icon to send the movie to the TV connected to your Roku.
Smart TV
There are many types of Smart TV's, and while most support casting in some fashion, not all of them support casting in the same exact way. While we can't provide detailed instructions for all your televisions, a short Google search should reveal the secrets of casting on your home TV.
