How can I watch on my TV?

  • Google Chromecast: You can chromecast from a Chrome web browser on PC and Mac computers as well as Android devices.
  • AirPlay: You can play content from Apple devices on your AppleTV or other compatible TVs via AirPlay. The video player will work on AppleTV devices of Generation 3 or later.

The video does not play. What can I do?
Please check if you meet the system requirements. All system requirements are listed here.
We recommend that you update to the latest version of your browser.
We use adaptive bitrate streaming which means the streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed. For High Definition (HD) streaming we recommend VDSL, cable or fibre connections as we cannot guarantee consistent HD streaming on ADSL.

I have a voucher code. How can I redeem it?
Choose the product you would like to buy here. Create an OUTDOOR CINEMA account or sign in to an existing one. During the payment process, choose the option “I have a voucher code”. In the text field, enter your code, click „Redeem“ and then “Confirm”.

How much time do I have to watch after a purchase?
Each film or episode has a rental period of 7 days (2 days when exchanging tickets for E.O.F.T. 2021). The rental period will only start when you have first played the video. This also applies to Season Passes or Bundles: If you chose a Season Pass or Bundle, each film/episode will be available for watching from the day of its first release. However, the 7-day rental period will only begin with the first play of the video.

What is a Season Pass or Bundle?
A Season Pass is the complete package: When buying the Season Pass you will gain access to all four episodes of a product, e.g. the E.O.F.T. BASECAMP. Should you buy the Season Pass before all episodes have been published, you will be automatically able to watch them as soon as they have been released.
A Bundle also includes several films or programmes which you will be able to access automatically after purchasing the bundle.
