I’ve got no idea who’s in charge of selections in the catalog, but it’s poor at best. Good bye!
I don't know who the curator for this application is, but after paying month after month for a couple of years, you'd expect the Met to give you access to good quality videos of some strong performances. However, most of them are from several years back, with the poorest visual definition you might expect and sound with no remastering at all. They have more audio of performances than videos as well. In any case, I would not recommend this application any more after being patience for quite some time.
Love the app when it works. The. There are those times when there is technical errors. Such as right now, 2/17/23 11:05pm. This is at least the second time the service was not available since my subscription. The last time was when the Met Opera got hacked and service was not available for quite some days. Beef up your service please!
Truly terrible experience. Cannot watch anything on iPhone. The app is USELESS.
For several years, we have watched met opera on demand with pleasure every Saturday followed by a zoom discussion. A month we lost access and though I have tried multiple times to reactivate my app I have failed I even set up new email address to establish a new account and that too has failed. When I try to activate I get a message to subscribe. When I try to resubscribe I get a message to activate. This is the most unfriendly app I have ever used.,
Works flawlessly on my Apple TV and sound system. Only complaint is iPad app favorites do not synch up with Apple TV. Also the Met takes its own time and selection in getting new Operas up. Only the HD versions are worth seeing which is a great pity as some of the greatest performances are older and not HD. Obviously a 4K option would be welcome.
I have not been able to log in for months- doesn’t recognize email— rschor@ gmail.com
The Met Opera has had a huge web event and is down at the moment, wait until this is resolved until subscribing. I’m currently being billed for the app to crash when I try to use it.
Though the app does need some improvements I used to fairly enjoy it until a few months ago when all of a sudden I suddenly cannot anymore use it. I keep getting a “connection error”. (Needless to say I don’t have any internet connection issues with any other app or web access). It’s literally non functional. Not sure how this issue could have been released and not fixed for so many months.
A total waste of time. I signed up to subscribe and got to watch Turandot. Next time I opened the app, it wouldn’t play anything. And when I clicked on “Restore Purchases,” it just crashed. Needless to say, I deleted the app and canceled my subscription.
