FAQ

How do I buy tix & watch this show?
The page you’re on right now is your one-stop-shop for buying tix and watching the show when it premieres! To buy, just click the red “WATCH” button above. FYI: You’ll first be prompted to register for an Ars Nova Supra account, and then you can checkout by purchasing either a single ticket or a subscription. When it’s time to watch the premiere, come back, login, and the show will begin!

What if I can’t watch at 7 PM ET?
This show premieres promptly at 7 PM — so if you want to experience it with our audiences who will be live-chatting, you’ll want to tune in on time. But we understand that life happens, and you might also be located in a different time zone! So your ticket includes access to watch and re-watch the stream until 5 PM ET the following day.
