While in New York, I learned that the Met has launched a new thing called Met Player so that you can now watch Met productions – some in HDTV – on your computer when you want. The Met has made 13 High Definition videos and 39 historic TV performances available. Right now you can take advantage of a 7 day free trial. I guess that means that you can watch as many operas as you can stand for 7 days before you have to pay anything. Afterwards, you can try one of several rental options.
