Southampton Recorded Music Society

Classical music streaming sites

During the current pandemic, several orchestras and opera houses are offering free online streaming of selected items from their recorded catalogue. You can watch these streams on any device that offers an Internet browser, such as a computer, iPad, Android tablet, or any smartphone.

The best option is to use a television. Most modern TVs allow you to access Internet sources. Older TVs can do the same thing if you buy a relatively cheap small plugin device, such as Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, etc.
