IF I HAVE MULTIPLE TVS THAT I WANT TO STREAM ARTCAST ON, DO I NEED SEPARATE SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR EACH?
If the TVs/devices are hooked up to the same wireless network, you can use the same subscription for on all of them except Samsung TVs due to limitations within their platform. If the TVs are in a different geographic location using a different wireless network, you will need to have a second/separate subscription.
HOW DO I CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION TO ARTCAST?
If you’d like to cancel your subscription you will have to do that through the device platform in which you are subscribed. We do not have the ability to do this for you on our end as all subscriptions are managed through either Apple, Roku, Google, Amazon or Samsung.

STREAMING DEVICES & TVS
CAN I USE THE SAME LOGIN INFORMATION FOR ROKU, APPLE TV AND/OR AMAZON FIRE TV?
Currently, subscriptions cannot be used across the different platforms. While you can use a single subscription across multiple devices of the same kind for Roku, Amazon FireTV, Google/Android and Apple TV, you will need to create a new subscription on any additional platform in order to access Artcast there as well. Samsung is the only exception and requires a separate subscription for each TV/device, though this will soon be changing.

I HAVE A LG SMART TV. CAN I ACCESS ARTCAST DIRECTLY THROUGH IT?

ARE ARTWORK CAPTIONS (TITLE, ARTIST) AVAILABLE ON ARTCAST?
Yes. All of the artworks in our Classical Art category are captioned and we are still working on captioning (where possible) over 75,000 other images from the other categories so we appreciate your patience until all are complete. Please keep checking back as they will continue to be added on a rolling basis or let us know which galleries you’d like to see captioned next.
HOW DO I TURN ON ARTWORK CAPTIONS?
In order to view captions for works of art, you must select “Display Captions” in the Set Captions Display section of the Settings. Once enabled, works of art that have been captioned will show artist name, title of work and the year of the work for approximately 10 seconds at the start of each image.
HOW DO I CHANGE THE DURATION FOR WHICH PHOTOGRAPHS AND PAINTINGS ARE DISPLAYED?
You can change the image duration by selecting “Set Display Duration” in the Settings. There you have the option for each image to display from 30 seconds up to two hours.
Select “Infinite” if you only want to have one image from a collection displayed statically. When “Infinite” is selected, paintings and photographs will not change automatically, but rather you will need to change them manually by swiping to the next image using your remote.
IF I SET AN IMAGE ON INFINITE FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, WILL THIS BURN OUT MY TV SCREEN?
Image burn was a bigger problem with older TV’s rather than newer TV’s, so it hasn’t been an issue for most of our customers; however, each TV is different and we recommend you consult your TV manufacturer for the particular needs of your TV.
HOW DO I CHANGE THE BACKGROUND MUSIC?
In order to change the background music for image/painting galleries, you must select “Set Audio Preference” in the Settings. There you can choose from Chill Out, New Age, Classical or No Audio. We are currently working to add even more options in the coming months, so keep checking back.
For video galleries, it is not possible to change the music as the audio tracks are already embedded.
CAN I PLAY MY OWN MUSIC THROUGH THE APP?
No, this feature is not yet available.
CAN I STREAM MY OWN ARTWORK OR PHOTOS THROUGH THE APP?
No, this feature is not yet available.
DOES ARTCAST WORK IN PORTRAIT ORIENTATION ON VERTICAL SCREENS?

I'M STREAMING ON ROKU AND ARTCAST KEEPS SHUTTING OFF AFTER A SHORT PERIOD. HOW CAN I FIX THIS?
To prevent Roku’s screensaver from disrupting your art stream, please ensure you have disabled it in the Roku Settings area under Theme or Screensavers > Screensaver wait time > Disable screensaver.
