Music is beyond compare; app is completely useless

Purchasing a 12 month season pass seemed expensive until I listened to the concerts and realized this was the biggest bargain in online music. I cannot express how much I have enjoyed having access to these concerts. On the other hand, the app itself is barely OK. The sound quality is fine but the video quality is awful. The app for iPad is far superior in video quality and ease of locating a specific concert. Plus the iOS app allows downloads for offline viewing. If the Windows app were simply brought up to the iOS standard, I would readily give it 5 stars. Update (6/16/2016): The app has clearly not been updated to run in Windows 10 and crashes as soon as it is opened, even when opened full-screen. The app is completely useless. How do they expect anyone to renew their subscription?

Crashes hard upon opening

I love the Berlin Philharmonic and the Digital Concert Hall. This app, however, doesn't work. Not sure why. It comes up just long enough to show the front page, and then it crashes hard. The android app works great, just not this app for some reason. :(

Seemed to work earlier this year, but downloaded it onto my brand new surface pro 4 and it just crashes. Starts for second then goes away.

Great classical music app

I haven't had any of the problems that other users reported. The app works fine, is as easy to navigate as any other app, and provides a great way to experience some fantastic concerts.

I have a subscription to the BP but when I tried to use the App it completely failed to work. I could never access it. It never appeared on the start screen. I love the BP; I even went to Berlin to see them. This is not their style.

Great Experience Design

I love this Windows Modern app with so rich and easy to use features for enjoying one of the greatest orchestras in the world. The app presented just the right amount of info with clear navigation. I usually watch the digital concert hall from home TV via a Blu Ray player. Guess I will start using Win8 app via Miracast for better usability.

Doesn't even start

I enjoy the concerts through the browser very much. But this app just doesn't work. It starts and immediate quits. I have tried this on multiple pc/laptops and the same problem occurs.

Just crashes

That's it, no functionality . Crashes as soon as it's open. 4/18/2016 update. piece of junk for an app. If Microsoft truly cared about its offerings, would remove the app from the store.

Crashes instantly

Couldn't even log in/ or anything. Crashes as soon as the app opens. Very disappointing.
