Marquee TV - Netflix for the arts?

Recommended Posts

Had a look at this,and it seems,that quite a few of their offerings are available - and free!- on other platforms. But we'll worth keeping an eye on it. Thanks to you and The Times for noting it.

The website is at http://launch.marquee.tv/

 

I see nothing as yet from the ROH, despite what it says in the Times article?  There are half-a-dozen Bolshoi productions, though.

I know the state of sterling is poor but the cost is $8.99 (for US) or £8.99 (UK)!!!!

To quickly introduce myself before I update an old thread, I'm Marc and I'm Head of Content for Marquee.

 

Apologies for the necro here.. but actual ROH programs are now on Marquee.TV, including Winter's Tale, Alice, Giselle, etc. A few more are coming (Ashton, MacMillan) There are more available in the US than UK because of rights issues. There was a little bit of confusion by some of the press because at the time we had other content under license from the Royal Opera House's label, but the actual ROH content wasn't ready.

 

Also - to whomever mentioned that the price difference (or similarity) between the UK and US was due to VAT - you nailed it :)

Thank you, Marc.  Welcome to the forum, and thanks for bumping the thread, because I'd totally forgotten about it.  When I have some spare time, I must take a look ...

The ballet offerings are here, by the way:

https://watch.marquee.tv/browse/dance/2052

 

Took me a while (and a change of browser) to get at them ...

 

EDIT: Better still, go to the main dance page here

https://watch.marquee.tv/browse/dance

and then click on "ALL [type of dance]"

I originally thought that all available films were shown on this page, but that's not true.

Works with Apple TV so can stream direct on TV or Beamer, with 14 day free trial too.

 

I have freed myself a weekend next month to having a ballet-binge :)

Was interested to find that The Winters Tale shown here is not the one that is available on DVD, but the one shown in cinemas during the last run. Worth a look, especially for Muntagirov as Florizel and Morera as Emilia. Not so sure about some of the other performances.
