LIVESTREAM PERFORMANCES FROM HOME
New! Enjoy select livestream performances, directly from the Virginia G. Piper stage to the comfort of your home. When you purchase a virtual ticket, the livestream content will be available for you to experience on the date and time of the performance. Check out the livestream FAQ below, and test out casting to your TV ahead of time with the embedded test video.
How do I access the livestream, and what platform do you use for streaming?
To access the livestream performance, log into your Scottsdale Arts account. Livestream video content is hosted and can be accessed via the Virtual Content and Livestreams side menu. Please note: the livestream will be available on the date and time of the performance.
Scottsdale Arts uses the video platform Vimeo for performance livestreams. The livestream video is hosted on a Scottsdale Arts virtual content webpage, which you can cast to your TV.
How do I stream on my TV, what’s the best way?
For TV streaming, we recommend using an HDMI cable laptop hookup or Google Chromecast with your mobile device. Performances can also be viewed on your computer, tablet, or mobile device.
The video cannot be accessed through a Vimeo App on Roku, Firestick, or other common streaming platforms.
AppleTV is known to have streaming-delay issues with Vimeo. Be advised: it is possible you will have streaming issues with AppleTV casting. Issues are more common with an out-of-date AppleTV application. We recommend having your AppleTV updated with the latest software release and using Apple AirPlay on your iPhone to cast to the TV.
Test out casting the video below to your TV at home before the performance!
Important Note: Arizona is in the Mountain Time Zone with year-round Mountain Standard Time. Arizona does not observe Daylight Saving Time. From early November through mid-March, Arizona is aligned with the rest of the Mountain Time Zone on Mountain Standard Time. From mid-March to early November, Arizona remains on Mountain Standard Time, which is aligned with Pacific Daylight Time, meaning Arizona time is one hour earlier than the rest of the Mountain Time Zone during Daylight Saving Time.
