Hi all,

Is everyone else still suffering with the known issue of Napster through Sonos??

Message along the lines of "temporary technical problem" etc, etc...

Limited details on Napster website, ie when this might be fixed, and I'm very much hopeful that they will extend the free month to at least two months to cover for the prolonged time of the issues.

 I know many people have expressed their dissapointment.

Kind regards.

Yep - I abandoned my Napster trial because of it though tbh I thought the sound quality of napster was terrible in comparison to Spotify. Take a look at the Sonos forums for more details

Have you not had the emails from Napster and Sonos? If you search the forum you'll find the copy I posted

Hiya,

Yep, got the emails but that was a couple of weeks ago now.

Might have to look into Spotify. Is it as good/better that napster? Just as user friendly?

I had real problem with my free trial in December last year. I kept getting 'can't find server' errors and when I did connect tracks would be missed out, it was very slow at times as well. I just presumed this was how it always was.

Re: Sonos/Napster Issues

Yeah. That's where I discovered there was an issue. I have not received any e-mails though about it.

Re: Sonos/Napster Issues

I got the email - and the extra month's subscription.    I do prefer the Napster front end on Sonos to Spotify - better to have top 100 lists, playlist choices etc for when you need a bit of inspiration.  Can't say I could tell the difference between them in terms of quality, but the response time on napster is so slow i've normally given up trying especially on a weekend. 


 


I think I know where my subscription will be going if they don't sort it out....big shame as for £5 per month including 5 free downloads it's a great deal.
