connecting to eventive

To enhance your screening experience, you may be able to stream films from the EVENTIVE platform directly to your television, or connect your computer to your television using an HDMI cable. Please review the summary information below for instructions and links to additional resources.

The easiest way to stream a film from EVENTIVE on your TV:

  • If you have an Apple TV, Chromecast (3rd gen or later), or a smart TV enabled with AirPlay or Chromecast, set your computer, mobile device or browser to “AirPlay” or “cast” to the TV device. Log into your EVENTIV.ORG account, unlock the film, and then set your player window to full-screen using the icon at the lower right.
  • Apple TV or Roku: download the “EVENTIVE TV” app from the Apple TV App Store, Roku Channel Store, or Roku website.
    Note: Due to content protection restrictions, the Screen Mirroring feature on Smart TVs and other devices cannot be used. Many browsers built into Smart TVs and other devices will NOT allow protected content to play.

To directly connect a laptop or computer using an HDMI cable:

  • Make sure your computer is close enough to your television for the HDMI cable to reach between them safely.
  • Connect one end of the HDMI cable into an available HDMI port on the TV. Plug the other end of the cable into your laptop’s HDMI out port
  • Set the TV to the specific HDMI Input port that the computer is connected to using the source or display button on your TV remote.

  • PC computers running Windows 7+, using Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, or Opera.
