How To Watch

You can watch Home Delivery Plus events on a variety of platforms. You will first need to purchase a subscription or individual events and then log into a Washington Performing Arts account to view. Instructions/links for viewing on all platforms are below, but first…

ADVICE FOR YOUR FIRST EVENT
The first time you watch Home Delivery Plus, we recommend you allow 5-10 minutes for login in advance of your desired viewing time—especially if you need to recover your Washington Performing Arts account password. If you already know your login, you should be able to access an event in a matter of moments.

PLATFORMS FOR VIEWING HOME DELIVERY PLUS

Washington Performing Arts website
Our website provides the richest Home Delivery Plus viewing experience, including a video player and a sidebar for chat and links to other content. To login and view on our website, see our step-by-step “How to Watch” PDF primer.

Apple iPad app and Apple TV
Our web-streaming partner, OurConcerts.live (OCL), offers native apps for iPad and Apple TV. Visit OCL’s Washington Performing Arts page to download one or both of these apps and for viewing instructions. Please note that on both the iPad and Apple TV, you will see the main video player alone, without the “chat” function and other links. For these additional features, please view events from our website.

Mirroring WPA’s website to your smart TV
From your desktop computer or handheld device, you can “mirror” the audio and video from our website onto your smart television. Here are links to basic mirroring instructions for the major desktop and handheld devices:

 

Unwrapping the Package - The Components of Home Delivery Plus

Headline Artist

Each Home Delivery Plus “package” is built around a performance by a Headline Artist, pre-recorded (without an audience) in a real concert venue—including D.C. favorites and theaters around the world. Each Headline Artist set is professionally shot from multiple camera angles and features high-quality, professionally mixed sound.

But there’s much more to Home Delivery Plus. Drawing on the strengths of the internet, each package offers a selection of these related components:

Soundcheck

Soundcheck: An advance information kit on the artists and program, offered free to the public on our website, featuring videos, program notes, links for learning, and more. Resources will be added throughout the series, so check back often!

Green Room

Green Room: An insider’s view on the production, featuring “backstage” fly-on-the-wall footage, plus conversations with the artists and special guests.

Opening Act

Opening Act: A short set to open the program, performed by artists from our own community, with support from our Mars Arts D.C. program.

Linger Longer

Linger Longer: A post-performance conversation or panel discussion with the artists and special guests.

The Lobby

The Lobby: For our premiere streams, Fridays at 8PM: Socialize with fellow viewers, WPA staff, and special guests before (beginning at 7:30PM) the show and at intermission.
