    It's a bit of a bummer, but if you think about it, an average album is around £10. It's £10 a month for Spotify premium. With that you get to use Spotify mobile (which is very good), ad-free listening and also a bump in stream quality, meaning you're getting better sound. If you're a heavy listener to music, then it pretty much pays for itself. However, most people will just start downloading illegally again.

    I'm a Spotify Premium subscriber so this doesn't affect me anyway, but the new rules are ridiculous. 5 plays?!

    I recommend people try we7.com

    Good bye free music. Such a shame. It had gotten very popular though, so am not surprised.

    Somehow, I blame Nick Clegg for this.



    Damn, I thought I'd avoided the caps because I use Free rather than Open. Guess not. Bit peeved, but I have paid for Spotify before and I would probably do it again, I think it is worth the money.

    This, if you sign up you get ad-free days.. :')
    Only downside is they don't have much in the way of non UK/USA music so if you're into that crazy stuff from europe *me* it's not much use.

    well tbh its a rolling month so unless you spend 10 hours on it a day then it doesnt make a difference and are you telling me you listen to the same track more than 5 times a day??

    Ugh, I really don't know what I'm going to do. A lot of music is difficult to find without spotify, and paying for it is going to be even worse.

    Bummer.

    Does anyone not have limited listening hours?

    I get unlimited listening hours for some reason as I think I got spotify before they put in place the certain number of listening hours.

    But yeah it sucks I love spotify!!

    Funny you say that, I'm hugely into Greek music and we7 have more albums than Spotify and even iTunes!

    It's not five times a day, it's five times ever! The article explains it all

    If i'm really obsessed with a song I can listen to it more then 5 times a day! But 5 times to play a song ever?? That's impossible for me with certain songs I love!

    I'm pretty sure these restrictions will only affect recently created accounts (and future accounts), so many people announcing the end of their use of the service in this thread may actually be unaffected

    EDIT: I was wrong. What a bummer!

    Yeah, we've got Spotify Free, which is currently the invitation only free version. As I understand it, they are basically removing this version altogether.
