Spotify wants your money.. and why not.. ????
Here’s how the changes will work:
■New Spotify users will be able to enjoy our unrivalled free service as it is today for the first 6 months.
■As of May 1st, any user who signed up to the free service on or before November 1st 2010 will be able to play each track for free up to a total of 5 times. Users who signed up after the beginning of November will see these changes applied 6 months after the time they set up their Spotify account.
■Additionally, total listening time for free users will be limited to 10 hours per month after the first 6 months. That’s equivalent to around 200 tracks or 20 albums.

Was only really a matter of time.
They are probably figuring that too many people are generally happy with the adverts and not needing it on a mobile device so are sticking with the free version.
It's a shame for those of us fitting into that bracket but they have to eat

I was using the FREE Version but thought it would be quite handy to play it in my car also so i purchased it.. plus i kept maxing out the hours in a day or so! so was screwed for the rest of the month! LOL
I had the 7 days premium FREE and then just pay the £9.99 per month.

I'm already a premium user and the £9.99 a month is fantastic to say i use it on my phone, in the office and at home

I'm quite happy to pay for it too - there's always a few gaps in stuff I want, but on the whole it's fairly well populated.
The out of country use is also pretty handy :-)

I would be more than happy to pay for it but they don't have an app for my Blackberry but keep announcing one coming soon....................Damn you spotify WHEN is NEVER to a simple man like me.
DO IT NOW! ;D

Bye bye Spotify, not paying for the service so will just use the allowance then get rid...

I pay for spotify, have done for a long time now primarily for the mobile use but I do enjoy the higher quality sound too.

It was Shaun that talked me into doing it! and I am very pleased I did so handy for the car and the fact it auto sync's over network so no need to mess around with iTunes.

Another happy paying user here. Been a paid user for near enough 2 years now. £9.99 for unlimited music, and mobile access has always seemed like a good deal to me! By the same price, i could be buying about 14 albums a year. Not exactly a lot!

Oh look, I have my own domain and a global inbox. Wonder how many times I can get away with signing up under throwaway addresses to get another 6 months?
15th April 2011, 04:16 PM #12
So peoplw who have been on the free since before November 2010 will also only get 10hours?
Its good and I use it a fair bit but it doesn't have a great selection of tracks in my fav genre- (proper) dance - so it really isn't worth,£10 to me.
Ampache it is then

Google Mail's plus addressing and full-stop trick will enable you to use a single e-mail address for quite a few years.

Hopefully this will get me buying more CDs in my local independent record stores.

What's one of them?

Then even when you find something that looks interesting and click "listen to clip" its generally just a random 30sec clip which bares very little relevancy to the actual CD/song
