Rhapsody, the popular online streaming service, is offering for a limited time a free 60 day trial. You can access Rhapsody on your PC, mobile devices, home audio system, and more. I generally use Pandora, which I have playing at work via my Squeezebox Radio or at home via my Sonos setup (review hopefully to be done shortly for those interested). I have been meaning to try Rhapsody, and I think this 60 day trial may be too good to pass up. You can sign up for the free trial here. Keep in mind that even though the trial is free and you can cancel at any time you are required to provide your credit card information. Here is what Rhapsody posted regarding:
We offer a free trial so you can get to know Rhapsody. However, we must limit each customer to one free trial. Your valid credit card helps us determine that you are eligible for this offer.
You will not be billed during your 60-day trial. After it ends, you will be charged US $9.99 (plus applicable taxes) per month thereafter. If you decide Rhapsody isn’t for you, you can cancel by phone or online anytime. Any MP3s that you purchase from Rhapsody will be charged individually.
UPDATE – it took me about two minutes to sign up for the trial and add a few albums to my library. I then hopped over to mysqueezebox.com, downloaded the Rhapsody app, and a minute later I had Rhapsody playing on my Squeezebox Radio!
