    Pardon my ignorance on technical info. Can anyone help answer this?

    I have an Iphone, but not a tv with Apple TV. Is there a way to play this on my phone, but put it onto my tv?

    As far as I know it only works with Apple TV. Then you can use the AirPlay Button.

    Question of my own: I do have Apple TV. So now what? I turn it on and Gigaton magically appears? In the iTunes Shop for free I would imagine?

    I believe you can watch from your iPhone. Click on the Apple TV app and try running one of the free movies or TV shows. I just tried it and it worked for me.

    So, Apple TV is a thing, Apple TV+ is another thing (a streaming service, like Netflix).

    The Apple TV app and Apple TV+ are available on a wide variety of streaming platforms, popular smart TVs, and AirPlay‑enabled TVs.
    Devices: https://www.apple.com/apple-tv-app/devices/

    Gigaton Visual Expierence will be available on Apple TV+,

    You would go to the Apple TV icon on the menu/front page (black box with white apple logo). If its not one of the banner ads (it most likely will be for the free week), just search Pearl Jam. rn they have PJ20 and Single Video theory (wish they would add HD versions of the other home video releases). Gigaton will most likely appear there.


    I would like to know how much it will cost once the free week is done. I have an Atmos setup and if this sounds amazing (the only Atmos release Ive heard is the Taylor Swift reputation show on Netflix - which definitely sounds fucking amazing), I'll buy with no hesitation.

    Just a heads up, if your receiver for surround doesn't process Atmos, it will just be a nice 4k watch. No different than playing the CD with nice visuals.

    One track in and the mix is so fucking awesome. I wish my iPhone could play Atmos. Would live to hear this on headphones.

    Holy shit. DotC

    This makes me long for an Atmos mix of a live show.

    I have surround rear speakers on top of a shelf in my living room, but I've never gotten around to hooking them up (no nice way to have the cables reach them). But maybe I will do some temporary setup just to hear this in full surround

    If you don’t have Dolby Atmos it’s basically just like watching the YouTube videos 
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 4,676
    The videos in the film are the same videos that the band put up on YouTube. It’s just the audio mix is “different”.

    Ok. Whatever you say. I watched this on a TV without Atmos (or even a sound bar) and it was fantastic and then I watched it on a 7.1 stereo system with Atmos and it was also fantastic. Beautiful mix. Saying this is like watching Youtube videos is dumb, because this is absolutely awesome regardless of how you watch it. You can put it on and just let the album play, with some visuals. What's with the posturing here?

    Just watched it listening through my main system. No Atmos here but it sounded awesome. And the visuals are just fantastic. Give it a go it’s worth it IMO.

    Sorry for being dumb, I was just trying to make him feel better about not being able to see it. I’m not either by the way, just on my phone.
    So enjoy it for the rest of us and have a lovely day

    Hello there.

    Regards
    Go to your local Target and purchase an Apple TV. 

    Honestly, that’s the only way I know you can. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.
  • I've been trying to watch this on my Roku. I can sign in on the Apple TV app OK, but when I click on "Play Movie", it says "To watch this content, sign in to the ITunes store".

    Anybody have a suggestion on what to do? Couldn't find anything online except clearing account etc. (which didn't work)
  • Ok, so I'm going to watch on my iPad Pro - have a year of Apple TV free on there. Hoping the playback comes through on headphones, like Soundgarden Superunknown did on their DTS app years ago. *That's still fucking badass if you all ever get to put your ear on it, holy shit. Sound coming at you from all angles.
