MasterClass is the streaming platform that provides unlimited access to 150+ instructors and classes across 11 subjects such as Arts & Entertainment, Business, Design & Style, Sports & Gaming, Writing and more. Sessions offer members a structured, 30-day curriculum that gives them the ability to engage with peers and to learn meaningful skills through step-by-step guidance.
For instance, Nas welcomes students inside his recording studio, Gordon Ramsay inside his kitchen, and James Cameron takes you behind the camera. Members can plan their career with Elaine Welteroth, stay motivated with Lewis Hamilton, learn how to deliver a strong pitch with Shonda Rhimes, and negotiate with the master Chris Voss.
All subscriptions are annual. There is no monthly option.
We tested MasterClass and other subscription streaming services for more than 100 hours. MasterClass is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, Android TV, iPhone/iPad, Android Phone/Tablet, Mac, Windows, LG Smart TV, Samsung Smart TV, Sony Smart TV and VIZIO Smart TV.
Each immersive learning experience features about 20 video lessons per class, lasting an average of 10 minutes each. Each class consists of 2-5 or more hours of video content. There are also downloadable Instructor Guides. There are world-class instructors like Gordon Ramsay (chef), Serena Williams (athlete), Bobbi Brown (makeup), Diane von Furstenberg (fashion), David Sedaris (humor), Alicia Keys (songwriting), and so much more.
The utility and entertainment value of each class varies. Penn & Teller do a fascinating and fun magic class, Martin Scorsese gushes about film history more than teaching you how to direct, and Annie Leibovitz’s photography session boils down to “take a picture and let your assistant color correct it.” You will find some classes fascinating and others more along the lines of a lengthy interview.
