By Baker Helton
The Disc Golf Pro Tour has shifted to showing the Live Broadcast exclusively on and Roku. If you do not have a Roku device, or the Roku app is not working, there are several ways in which you can broadcast the live coverage on your television at home.

All of the following examples assume you have navigated to and are ready to play the video from there.

For TV’s with HDMI ports
If your TV has an HDMI port you can plug and play any device and cast on your TV via HDMI. There are adaptors available for devices which use USBC and Lightning cables as well. (Photo Examples provided here in this article).

Google Chromecast or FireTV App
If you have an Android Device you can watch the following video to download an app that will allow you to play any video on either Google Chromecast or FireTV. You should be able to play the livestream on Google Chromecast without the app, but the app is free and seems to be very useful.

Apple TV
With AirPlay, you can stream videos to your Apple TV.

To use AirPlay, you need one of these devices:

  • iPhone 4 or later
  • iPad or iPad mini
  • iPod touch (4th generation or later)

and then stream content to your Apple TV
Use AirPlay

  1. Connect your iOS device and Apple TV or AirPort Express to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. On your iOS device, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to access Control Center .
  3. Tap AirPlay.
  4. Tap the name of the device you want to stream content to. You’ll see icons of a TV screen or speaker next to each device so you know what type of content you can stream. On iPad, you might need to scroll to see all of the available devices in the device list.

For Smart TV’s
Most Smart TV’s have a web browser which will allow you to play video. However, each Smart TV is unique so refer to the user guide of your individual Smart TV to ensure a proper set up.
