As of November 2015, Metropolitan Opera simulcast event recordings are available for purchase on DVD and Blu-ray from the Met Opera Shop. Some event recordings are available for purchase from retailers such as Amazon.com.
The Metropolitan Opera also offers live streaming audio of selected performances on its website. There is no overlap between performances selected for audio streaming and those scheduled for live HD simulcasts to theaters. Listeners may use streaming audio capture tools to make recordings of audio simulcasts for personal use.
Selected live audio simulcasts are also available on conventional radio stations as well as through Sirius XM satellite radio. Listeners may use recording equipment such as audio cassette recorders or digital audio capture devices to make recordings for personal use.
