How do I watch a stream on my Smart TV?
We do not currently offer support for Smart TVs via our platform and so would recommend connecting by using an HDMI cable between your TV and your device.
You can also use AirPlay or Chromecast from a desktop device to watch Live on a Smart TV however we do not recommend this due to the quality of the connection when streaming via these services.
Please note that there is currently no support for Live in the Mixcloud AppleTV app and so you won't be able to use this to watch the stream. Additionally, there is no support for Chromecast via the Mixcloud apps.
What browser would you recommend to watch Live?
We'd recommend using Chrome or browsers such as Firefox to watch Live. We'd also recommend only having the tab with the stream on it open while viewing, as additional open tabs may cause buffering to occur.
Safari can be used to watch Live but will not allow you to watch in full-screen mode due to a recent Safari update so we would not recommend using this browser
