Very interesting. Looks promising!

Pray for all of our healthcare providers, food manufacturing and delivery workers, all of whom are doing their best at great risk to help us survive the current Covid-19 virus crisis.

Looks like there is a Apple TV App and they are coming up with Roku etc Apps.
Hope they pay attention to quality of Streaming - 4K HDR - ATMOS etc.
Having bad audio and video quality will be deal breaker for me.
If I had a way to reach out to them and preach it I would.
On another note for Theater Fans Disney Plus will be showing The show Hamilton Recorded n July 3rd .. fun fun

Ben Platt's concert from Radio City Music Hall last September was due to drop on Netflix two days ago, I've not checked yet.

So what was the experience like? What kind of audio did they provide? 5.1 or Atmos or ...? Audio or video compression issues? Or is their target audience flat screen TV's and soundbars?

Could be what A&E (Arts & Entertainment) used to be before the onslaught of reality TV and shows like Ancient Aliens I'd be interested if the programming is really plays, etc.

How's the content?

The play was OK - Lea Salonga saved it - she has a voice of an angel and a Soprano wrapped into one.
But this is not Hamilton or Les Mis or Cats - and is a smaller production so with that in mind pretty good play.
The play was recorded and streamed so not a Live Streaming event.
The fun part was the Zoom discussion 30 minutes before the play with all the key players - something you cannot experience if you go to Broadway.
Now - nothing is like watching a play on Broadway and actually best place to watch Theater is in London - I have done crazy things like using a 7 hour lay over at Heathrow to make a dash to SOHO in London and watching Tina Turner Theatrical Play on her life and catching my outbound flight.
BUT having the opportunity to watch plays which I would not go all the way to Broadway or even our Local Venue in my town is pretty promising.
On Video and Audio - Audio was OK and using our super duper set ups and upmixing I was able to get a good experience.
Video was horrible - on well lit scenes it was decent but on dark scenes it just fell apart. My wife was watching with me - she did not even notice - but I was cringing at the frame drops and poor video.
People with Flat TV and Sound Bars will not even notice.
So to watch Phantom of the Opera and Les Mis - 25th anniversary celebration at Royal Albert Hall on Blu Ray with great audio is the best BUT smaller shows like this which will never come on disc - I hope they improve the video quality and Theater lovers will have the ability to watch.
Next fun play will be Hamilton on Disney Plus on July 3rd - this is debuting a year earlier on Disney due to COVID.
Lets see how that 'plays' out.
