Excellent content, good app
I’ve been a subscriber for a few years now. The content is wonderful. So much to choose from. Recent and historical. Across a wide range of artists, composers, modalities. Production quality is usually very good. The app itself (as opposed to the content) has come a long way and is now perfectly adequate. The only reason I gave this four stars rather than five is because the app can still be improved, but it’s entirely usable as is. While it would be greatly advantageous to have a native app for platforms like Roku and Apple TV that are run straight from a TV, that’s not relevant to evaluating the iPad app itself. I do think Medici TV would realize a significant pick-up in subscribers if it could expand to platforms like Roku, which are not only more convenient when using a TV but would also allow for better audio (and perhaps video) than can be accomplished by broadcasting from the iPad to TV via Airplay.
Good afternoon, It looks like most ( if not all) the offline videos I’ve saved are no longer there I have the latest version of your app, on The iPhone XS, iOS version 13.5.1. So it’s look as if I have to download them again. Is there a bug that is causing this issue? Thanks Greg
Technical Frustrations, Great content
Subtitles don't stream to the TV during Airplay (and they stopped updating their AppleTV app) which means you have to watch everything on your device if you want subtitles. also, airplay is glitchy and sometimes you can't start or stop it when you want to. Those items aside, I like a lot of their content. It would be nice to be able to filter by instrument.
Great content, horrible service
I love the concerts and documentaries, but the website, and especially the app are not up to the same standard. The app will not allow scrubbing of the video, so if you've watched half of an hour long video and have to close the app, you have to start from the beginning. At least the concerts have a menu for separate movements. The app search does not bring up even half the results that you get on the website, and wouldn't you think with hundreds of items to choose from, that there would be a way to make a watch list or at least mark as favorites? As much as I would like to have access to the service, it's much too frustrating for the subscription fees.
Happy with recent app improvements
For years the app failed to behave like a proper media app: did not respond to media controls and support iPad PIP etc. it’s much better now and doesn’t get in the way of enjoying the wonderful and copious content. I dropped my Berlin Philharmonic subscription because the variety here is better (opera, ballet, solo performances, chamber music). The only thing missing is Apple TV app.
Piece of Crap
Have tried to use the app for a month. Paid $150 annually (upfront) for full version. Confusing main page, very limited controls for playing videos of recorded concerts. If you pause video reply the app often freezes, requiring app restart. Can't use slider to advance or go back on video reply. Contacted customer service (only option: email) about problem. 3 days later I got reply with instructions to use Airplay-she didn't even read my email. I tried to cancel subscription renewal. With 11 months left they cancelled me immediately with NO pro rata refund. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!
Cant save videos on iPhone
I’m having problems both on iPad and iPhone. On iPhone it reaches 100% but won’t save the video. On iPad I play the video and the app freezes, and when I try to reboot the app it keep freezing, so I can’t pause, choose another video or anything else
Outstanding content! No crashing with iPhone 6
The content in this app is mouth watering for classic music lovers. Easy to navigate. Music and performances load right away in decent resolution quality. I have an iPhone 6 Plus and have not experienced the crashes other reviewers complained about. The navigates between music pieces without trouble.
App has a long way to go...
I paid for a year subscription on the website, but the app did not recognize my subscription, even though it recognized my login. I then paid for a month through the app to hold me over while their “support team” could sort out the technical issue. 3 weeks and 5 emails later, I have yet to hear any response from them other than their automated email. The content is good but the app is extremely glitchy and the support team is non-existent.
Content just OK, iOS app useless
Confusing interface, buggy, a total ripoff considering the subscription cost. Just try saving something for offline viewing on a flight... to be able to use the app at all you must first login! Not online? Can't login... and the app is entirely disabled! But then it turns out you can't really save anything to your iPad anyway... after a very slow download it gets stuck forever on "Saving - 100%" but never actually saves anything.
Wonderful content horrible app
The app itself is very inconsistent. It does not work with AirPlay as it should. Often I cannot get it to work at all. I really have no interest in watching a concert on a phone or sitting at my desk to watch on my computer. Why on earth have you resisted in developing a native app for AppleTV? However on the times I do get it to work through AirPlay, the content is wonderful.
A front for a $20/month subscription
What a disappointment to find that virtually every program you might like to watch requires a costly subscription. I find $20/month to be excessive for iPad video when I have to purchase the data from my carrier for streaming it too. There appears to be much good content, but most of it is old--still good probably, but there will not be much new to keep me interested.
Very frustrating to say the least. After paying not a small sum for a premium yearly membership virtually every video on my iPad has problems. None will work. I keep getting either a spinning circle or an arrow with a line across it. It does work on my computer but I got this to use with my new iPad Pro.
Wonderful concept. We meed more classical music in all its forms — ballet, opera, concerts, interviews, etc. But this is a terrible app. Customer service has auto reply saying they will get back to you...and then don’t. Can’t access anything on ipad. Just continues to buffer. And they don’t refund your monies. It’s robbery. Be forewarned. Don’t sign up for this.
