I dig my Rhapsody account (unlimited music streaming)...
... but is there something better available?

I like paying a steady monthly amount ($9.95) to listen to practically everything available at my computer, but I still have to pay $0.79 per download if I want to save a song, or take it with me.

For the most part, I listen to music while at the computer, so high-quality streaming is what I'm most interested in. Are there any other options out there for me?

2. Well, I listen to aol broadband
which offers streams of alot of different flavors, they even have a "rock the vote' selection now, or if someone famous dies they do a tribute (cash, Charles most recently). Holiday music too

But I really dig the MLB streams, any game, no extry charge

Mrsfishnfla pays the bills, so I dont know the cost. They do offer music downloads, which I am not into.

I know, its aol,( boo, hiss.) Havent had any problems in over 2 years now

3. Can I choose, song-by-song, what to stream, though?

That's what I love about Rhapsody... I'm not subject to a "radio" type stream.

Does RealOne's subscription offer anything like this? I'd like to pay less, and get more... ya know?

4. Not that I am aware of, Jen
but I'll tell ya, thats what I like about it, you are exposed to new stuff all the time, you hear something you like, get the artists' bio, discography.

For "genre-type" audiophiles like myself (alt-country, bluegrass or reggae) its a good way to expose yourself to new stuff.

I had satellite radio for free awhile, and found it to pale in comparison.

But ya know, different strokes for different folks. here's Steve Earle now,,,,,

6. I like Rhapsody too and listen to it all the time
But why is there no AC/DC on it, damn it? :evilgrin:

Some of the licensing things are pretty weird. There's no Ozzy-era Sabbath either. :D

9. I have the Real One/Starz package and
love it. I can watch the Starz channel on my computer (I don't have cable TV and I love movies). I can download movies and keep them on my hard drive for a period of time. I can also watch them as often as possible. Even if I have the movie (LOTR, Pirates of the Carribean) I like having them on my hard drive because it uses less battery than using my DVD player.
