How can I stream concerts online to my TV?

Episode 1136 (2:01:45)

Jo from Riverside, CA
Roku Stick

Jo likes music and is interested in Umphrey's McGee. Leo says they're a fun group. Jo wants to watch streaming concerts on her television. Leo says that the Google Chromecast is the way to go. It's only $35. She'll use her laptop or smartphone to choose the content, and then it will hand off the content to the TV. Then she'll be watching on her TV, but controlling it with the phone.

Umphrey's McGee, however, uses a streaming client called Roxwell, and she'll need Roku for that. They make a $40 Roku Stick that handles it. They also have a great $99 set top box. Apple TV does the iTunes festival every year. But it's not the best choice for UM, Bob Weir, or Phish.

Jo notices that the stream buffers a lot. Leo says that usually means the Internet isn't keeping up. Jo uses DSL by AT&T. Leo says to talk to AT&T and see if they can give her a higher speed or tier. Basic broadband is barely usable for streaming. But it could also be that her computer is from 2002.
