What types of devices can I use to watch A Christmas Carol?
A Christmas Carol can be streamed to any device with a Wi-Fi connection and fast download speed. You can watch on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer, or on a smart TV.

Can I watch A Christmas Carol on my Smart TV?
If you have a cast-compatible device on the same Wi-fi network on which you have accessed the viewing page, a Cast icon will appear on your viewing page as soon as the stream has been activated.
Casting enables viewers to use either a Google Cast compatible device such as Chromecast, or an Apple AirPlay compatible device such as AppleTV, to stream video and audio content to a compatible TV or sound system. Tap the icon in the control bar to stream your content on a cast-compatible device. On The Stage does not provide technical support for issues that may arise during the casting of A Christmas Carol. If you are experiencing issue with casting, we recommend that you return to watching the stream on the native device.
