A: Yes! You can access the stream for a week’s length after you watch it and enjoy the performance as many times as you like.
Q: Are the films closed-captioned?

A: Please, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will resend the email confirmation.
Q: Will these videos be high quality?
A: Yes! These recorded versions of our performances were filmed on high-definition cameras and then carefully edited by a team of professionals. Each video is broadcast-quality.
Q: The link you sent me isn’t working, OR, I am experiencing trouble with playback of the video. Where can I find help?
A: Our videos are hosted on Vimeo. Some questions and issues may be best resolved by Vimeo, not ASC. Here are a few links to ‘Help’ articles from Vimeo which may solve your problem:
Not sure what you need help with? Take a look at the General Help articles.
Link not loading correctly? Check to make sure you are using a supported browser.
Video skipping or lagging? Take a look at the recommended Internet settings.
Q: Can I watch on my Roku/Smart TV?
We here at ASC don’t know the specifics of your TV and how it works, so we can’t tell you exactly what to do. The only way to purchase and view the video is on your computer or phone, but if you have an HDMI cable, you can easily hook your computer up to the TV to see it on the big screen.
Another recommended route is to download the “Vimeo” app on to your Smart TV. Vimeo is where our videos are hosted. If you are able to get the Vimeo app on your TV, make an account on your computer, add your ASC streaming video to your “Watch Later” list. Then, log into your new Vimeo account on your TV. You should be able to view the streaming performance from your “Watch Later” list.
