Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!
I just watched my first opera from this app in HD on my HDTV with hifi sound. Rigoletto actually. There are still a few hiccups (e.g. video freezing) which may be user errors. Overall the experience was amazing! For me this is the killer app for the Apple TV and really shows the power of Ipad Airplay. I really appreciate the quality of the multi-camera HD recordings. The editing keeps the video interesting and the close-ups deliver an unmatched emotional impact. Met and Apple, keep up the great work!
Finally, it works with AirPlay and Apple TV
It has been a long wait, but this new version works with AirPlay properly. Subtitles are now displayed at the bottom of the video on the TV, rather than being left behind on the iPad when streaming to Apple TV. And background playback is great. You can use other apps on your iPad while you watch the opera on your TV.
Read the reviews!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the updates. A couple of minor skips, but it really is wonderful. Especially the stop and return feature! Thank you for fixing this app. Being virtually bed ridden this allows me to be in the theatre with the best seat in the house! Sorry about only four stars....I have faith in you to continue the good work and fix those petty little glitches.
