Streaming services have pretty much replaced traditional TV. With the rise of binge-watching, it鈥檚 all Netflix this or Hulu that. Heck, streaming services have even entered our slang lexicon, like 鈥渨anna Netflix and chill?鈥 Cable is practically ancient 鈥 and live theater? Even less accessible鈥 so you think. A brand new streaming service has just arrived that is going to make musical and theater lovers rejoice! For those of you who don鈥檛 live in New York City and can鈥檛 easily pop over to Broadway 鈥 or simply don鈥檛 want to shell out $150 (give or take) for a ticket every time you want to watch a musical 鈥 meet BroadwayHD.

<> at Shubert Theatre on September 6, 2011 in New York City.

For about $14 a month or $169.99 a year (which is roughly the cost of one seat at The Lion King or Wicked), you get access to 120 different shows that you can access via TV or your smart devices. BroadwayHD was founded by Tony Award-winning producer couple Stewart Lane and Bonnie Comley and their intention, according to the site, is to 鈥減romote and preserve live theatre, extending the reach of Broadway and Broadway-caliber shows to anyone.鈥

And while watching the shows doesn鈥檛 replace actually watching them live, it鈥檚 definitely a good way to be able to access your favorites again and again and again. They鈥檙e also hoping that it鈥檒l get viewers to access and fall in love with shows they might not have thought about spending their money on before. In an interview with NY Daily News, Stewart said, 鈥淭he idea is to get somebody to say, 鈥業鈥檝e got to see that live and put $150 down to buy a ticket.'鈥

You hear that? You could be sitting on a bus heading to work in Oregon and streaming a production of Romeo and Juliet or Memphis. Sounds amazing to us.
