    • If you own a Roku Streaming Stick, Roku Smart TV, or Apple TV you can download the Eventive app, connect to your account, and stream films. (Note: live Q&As are not available on the Eventive App). Here’s a video tutorial to help.
    • You can also Cast or AirPlay the film to your TV. For this option, use your smart phone or laptop to “Cast” (Google Chromecast) or “AirPlay” (Apple) films to your TV.
    • You can plug your laptop or device into your TV through an HDMI cable.
