For the best immersive experience on your Smart TV, On Air has developed apps for both Apple tvOS (Apple TV) devices and Smart TV's running the Google Android TV (Google TV) operating system, as well as Amazon Fire TV. Download our apps here:

*Please note that we also have apps available for mobile devices - How to watch an On Air show on a mobile device.

Note that we currently do not (yet) have apps available for Samsung Tizen (Samsung Smart TV's), LG WebOS (LG Smart TV's) or Roku (Smart TV's running Roku OS). On TVs that don't have the On Air app, you can use Chromecast, AirPlay or an HDMI cable to watch the On Air shows. 

Alternative methods:

  • AirPlay - a step by step description can be found here.
  • Chromecast - a step by step description can be found here.
  • HDMI cable connection - connect your laptop to your TV using a cable. Make sure that the connection is HDCP 2.2 compliant (check the manual of your equipment). If the connection is not HDCP 2.2 compliant you will see a black screen due to Digital Rights Management enforcement.

When using AirPlay and Chromecast you will be able to fully experience the show in the quality you purchased it. For example a show with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision will be fully supported if your equipment is compatible.

Unsupported methods (most likely won't work):
- Miracast
- Smart TV built-in browsers
