How do I stream videos to my TV?

Each Smart TV and streaming device is different, so there is no single answer to how you can stream virtual content to your TV. Our Virtual YMCA videos support casting, which is the process of sending content from a mobile device to a PC or television screen. 

Click here for a brief tutorial on how casting works on some of the more popular devices. We recommend searching for your specific television or device to find directions on how to setup casting. 
 

How do I know which classes are live vs. on demand?

Our virtual videos are grouped into different categories within Virtual YMCA labeled as past classes and live streams. 

Past videos are on demand recordings of classes for members to enjoy at a time most convenient to them.

Live videos display a date and time for members to tune in and stream the class live.
