All I can see is a standby page, is that possible?

From half an hour before the show starts, there is image and sound, but the live stream itself does not start until the show starts. This gives you enough time to check your language, sound and image settings.

When in doubt, refresh your browser's page so you are watching in real time. This can be done via F5 on the keyboard (Windows) or Command ⌘ + R (Mac). You can often also find an icon (round arrow) in the browser to refresh the page. Click the 'start video' button and then the play button to start the video.

What should I do if I don't hear any sound?

From half an hour before the show starts, there will be sound and images, but the livestream itself will not start until the show starts. This gives you enough time to check your language, sound and image settings.

If you cannot hear any sound, try playing something from another website and make sure your speakers/headphones are working properly.

Also, make sure you haven't muted the sound on Digital Theatre.

If the problem persists, a simple reboot of your computer/tablet can often solve the problem.
