Extending screen from computer to TV

Tips to watch the broadcasts from your TV

Every concert this summer is a unique musical and cinematic experience; get the most out of each one by watching from your TV.

Enjoying this year’s concert broadcasts is easy: just go the Festival website (svmusicfestival.org) and click the media player at the top right of the page. Or if your device has the YouTube app, just search for Sun Valley Music Festival to find the concerts.
