NECESITO CANCELAR ESTA SUSCRIPCION
I purchased subscription and it will not let me login it asked for my username and password. It does not recognize my iTunes account. Very frustrating wasted a lot of time trying to login. Would not recommend until they fix the bug.
This app has not been updated since 2019 and has several bugs including the lack of remote button presses. The menu button fails to respond on a regular basis as does to play/pause button. The result is the inability to pause an opera or go back once you’ve start one. I have tried it both as a free and paid subscriber. Same problem both ways. Excellent content but extremely frustrating. Beware before you subscribe.
As you already know from other reviewers, the app‘ version for Apple TV needs to be updated. The navigation functions have stopped working about a month ago. If you will not fix this soon, I will cancel my subscription!
For the most part, the app does what it needs to do: playback content. I rarely experience buffering issues or drops in quality. I agree with other reviewers that it would be nice if the quality were better (especially the audio). However, in my experience there are some persistent bugs. Right now what’s frustrating me is the inability to pause playback on Apple TV. To “pause” I have to exit and then return to the app when I’m ready. Pressing play/pause has no discernible effect.
I love this app but just yesterday (11/14) on my Apple TV (4K) the pause/play button on remote no longer works. On other apps like HBO, Disney+, etc it still works fine. I’ve tried everything I can think of, restart, delete & reinstall, unplug Apple TV device - nothing has helped. VERY, VERY, VERY frustrating and seriously diminishes my enjoyment of the app without the flexibility of being able to pause. I’m hoping for a fix soon.
This app as well as your web application needs serious updating. Why can’t you rewind and forward between scenes? What if there is a favorite part of the opera that you would like to play over again without having to play the entire scene? This is ridiculous
I love met operas and this app delivers full catalogue that is pure delight to watch. Unfortunately the app is very buggy and I hope developer is working on improving it to meet the quality of the content presented. Few suggestions for upgrading the app: - improve sound quality. At home I use very good sound equipment and it is obvious that the sound used in even HD streams is very compressed. Operas are ultimate sound test and I know how good opera can sound if you have the right equipment. Ideally you should provide an uncompressed sound for ultimate experience. - please provide the ability to download streams and audio recordings for offline use. I like to stream audio recordings when I drive and every time my car goes through the poor or no signal area I have interruptions that I hate. - improve the info and bio on the recordings and artists that you showcase. They deserve all the credit and currently are treated like sub notes on the otherwise excellent content - allow us to ‘favorite’ recordings that we love and would like. I would like to have ‘My list’ feature prominently placed on the app home page. - add 4k HDR content for newer recordings. 1080p is so outdated.
The last thing The Met needs is an expensive app that doesn’t work, but here we are. I wanted to see Der Fliegende Hollander from March 2020 in the worst way and it final appeared in streaming. I signed up for a full year of On Demand. Now it doesn’t recognize I am a full subscriber on iPad or iPhone. Sometimes it works. I have deleted and re-added. Contacted Apple who confirms I am all set. So it’s a serious disconnect.
It does a good job at letting you watch the operas you’d like, but the amount of glitches that occur with the subtitles drive me insane. Also, I can’t favorite any of the operas I’ve watched. Sometimes they won’t even play. So if you have the patience and passion, it’s a decent app. If not, don’t download.
