Changes to Spotify Free/Open – unlimited might be worth it…

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.

There’s been a lot of hate shared; see the comments on the announcement quoted.

Recently I got the DSBridge solution to streaming Spotify working again (see http://mini.steveellwood.com/streaming-spotify-through-squeezebox-easily and my final comment) and £4.99 a month for unlimited streaming, with no adverts doesn’t sound bad for my use of Spotify…

Did everyone think free was going to live for ever? I have neither the time nor the inclination to “pirate everything” – and Spotify lets me hear a lot of the music my friends like.
