Site Tips and FAQs
5 Tips on How to Get the Most Out of this Site
- “See What’s On”.
It is the column located on the right side of the site. Use it to find the event you’re interested in watching. The tabs that are clickable indicate the web channels that will be streaming events that day.
- Click on the appropriate web channel.
Ten minutes before your event is scheduled to start, that web channel will open. You can watch the stream from two locations. Either (1) watch from the home page. Look for the red “Watch Now Choose Channel” graphic and select the appropriate web channel tab. Or (2) watch from the “See What’s On” column if you are on any other page on the site besides the home page. This column is always located on the right side of the website. Just click on the web channel’s tab. Any event happening now will be clickable. Note: TV & WEB 1 is always streaming because it is the 24/7 stream of The FLORIDA Channel.
- Refresh/reload your browser.
Click your web browser’s refresh/reload button if (1) you are trying to watch from the home page and the web channel your event is streaming on does not become clickable or (2) you are trying to watch from other pages on this site and an event happening now does not become clickable from the “See What’s On” column. By clicking on the refresh button, you’ll also be able to see any updates that have been made to today’s schedule.
- Clear you cache.
If you still are not able to view your event, it may be necessary to clear your cache. Caching allows your computer to do tasks more rapidly by making copies of web pages instead of downloading them from the Internet every time you visit a website. Clearing your browser’s cache will prompt your computer to display the latest information on a web page.
