Horrible App

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.

Don't wast your money on subscription

We loved this app until it stopped working. Last update was supposed to fix a launch issue. I wish they fixed their employees and hire a real developer. Somebody who can finally get this app to work. I am going to claim my money back. Advise for those who consider to have this app: "Please, do not waste your money." Developer should hang his/her head in shame.

Buggy, seldom works

Such a wonderful catalog. It just causes one to be so very disappointed when it can’t be made to work correctly. Small wonder so many of us are becoming technophobic. A real pain in the neck. Needs LOTS of work.

Can’t use student access on the app

I tried to access the library through my college but it isn’t even an option on this app. Guess I’ll use my computer

Apple TV app simply crashes!

I thought the quality of the Apple TV version of this app could not get any worse, but it HAS. Now the app won’t even start up, just crashes every time I try to start it. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no help. Guess I’ll cancel my subscription since I can’t use it. What a waste of great content.

Not buggy for me!

I tried the week trial on an iPad Pro and an Apple TV 4K. Everything worked fine. The content is Excellent after all this IS the Met. However there are several disappointments. The audio is only PCM stereo on the Apple TV 4K. NO Atmos audio or Dolby 5.1 Also NO 4K video. The subscription is pricey. I have a AVR and full Atmos speaker setup connected to the Apple TV 4K. The Met app audio was mediocre compared to the competition like Carnegie+ which has Atmos and Dolby 5.1 audio and also many 4K Operas. Since the Met subscription is $15 and Carnegie+ is $8 I believe the Met sub is way overpriced… close but no cigar until the Met drops the price or gives out promo codes…. FWIW Carnegie+ is available as a Apple TV “channel” not as an app.

I enjoyed it very much

After knowing the treatment to Anna Netrepko, I would like to cancel permanently. Art cannot be managed politically motivated. Carlos Martinez

The app can drive you crazy

I subscribed but each time I tried to watch something it said I had to subscribe. I repeatedly completed the subscription requirements only to be told I had already subscribed. Try watch and tells me again - subscribe. This goes on and on. Seriously get your act together.

Very frustrating

I continue to be charged for a subscription that doesn’t actually allow me access to the site or app. The “manage my subscription” button is on a loop of pulling me back to my account that tells me that I’m already subscribed or the app itself just crashes. There needs to be a website to access these archives or the app just needs to be completely shut down all together.

White horizontal bar on bottom

I just downloaded the app. My wife has subscription. We have enjoyed opera on big screen. Our technique that’s works is stream from laptop with HDMI connection to AV receivers. Got new iPhone. Download app both on TV and IPhone screen an annoying white horizontal line. Hire technicians from you tube please. When I use the device and sign into the website it works. Fix the app
