A new streaming service called Broadway HD is aiming to extend the reach of Broadway and Broadway-caliber shows to anyone, anywhere. While it’s free to subscribe to the service, most shows require a one-time payment (around $8) to stream — though there are a few free options, mainly short, behind-the-scenes stuff. Broadway HD is a trendy idea, especially for those who live far away from New York . Although, Broadway HD’s selection might be too limited to attract most casual theater fans. It currently has around 100 offerings, which are drawn from Broadway Worldwide’s Direct catalog, as well as BBC Worldwide North America and public television station WNET.
