Met Player has been renamed Met Opera on Demand, and is now available on the iPad!
With the Met's new app, you can enjoy instant and unlimited access on your iPad to more than 350 extraordinary Met performances—including dozens of productions from the Met's award-winning Live in HD series, classic telecasts from the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, and more than 250 radio broadcasts dating back to 1936. The app is free to download from the App Store, but you must have a Met Opera on Demand subscription. Sign up for a free 7-day trial or subscribe now on the Met website (either in Safari on your iPad or from a personal computer), then download the app and login to get started.
Once inside the app, the easy-to-use interface allows you to quickly browse the video and audio offerings. Tap the navigation tabs at the bottom of the screen, scroll up and down through the catalog, and swipe side-to-side within a letter of the alphabet or date range. Filter the list of videos to see only the stunning HD videos from our award-winning Live in HD series, and sort either by title or performance date. Tap on any title to read a short description of the performance, view the cast list, and click play to begin watching and listening. Bookmark your favorite performances and return to them whenever you want using the "Favorites" tab. Or tap "Search" and type in the name of any opera, composer, conductor, or performer to see all available results. In the app as on the website, all videos include English subtitles—and with the app you can now find subtitles in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish for select HD videos. Finally, tap "Share" just below any video and tell your friends on Facebook and Twitter about Met Opera on Demand and the new iPad app.
