Rhapsody 60 Day Free Trial Available For A Limited Time

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!

Hi, my name is Damian, and I'm tech gadget addict! Although I always had some interest in technology, it wasn't until I got my EX470 and more importantly found Mediasmartserver.net, that my interest became an addiction. My goal, aside from world domination and to see the Mets/Broncos win another championship, is to set up the perfect digital home where all my media is available at the click of a button. When I am not writing for Mediasmartserver.net you can find me over at my blog at http://www.adigitalhomeblog.com or follow me on twitter

You Rock! Thanks for the tip on this deal.
I was a rhapsody subscriber in the past but jumped ship to napster ($5/month) for my sonos system. After headaches with napster i was just about to sign back up with rhapsody when i saw your post.
I think the interface and content is possibly the best of the streaming services. No social media etc to clutter things up.
I plan on joining after 60day trial and i think they have a streaming only subscription for $5 too (if you contact rhapsody and ask). Ill stick with this plan unless spotify finally comes through.
thanks again for all that you do!

Awesome, great to hear. I signed up yesterday and have been playing Rhapsody all day today at work (Squeezebox Radio). I also set it up on my wife’s iPad/iPhone and showed her how to use it

Good tip. Definitely looking forward to the Sonos review as I’m very close to ordering the ZP90.

Damian March 4, 2011 at 10:56 am

Right now I have a black S5 and 1 ZP90 at home. Will eventually be adding another S5 and possibly a ZP120 for outdoors. Obviously due to the cost it takes some time to build everything up, but so far it has been worth it

I have 7 zones of sonos pumping everywhere (installed during a home build) from my garage to my deck and everyplace in between for the last 3 years.
There is music on all the time for adults and kids.
Ive tried stuff from audioengine, logitech, even airfoil/airport express(!) back in the day, but I can honestly say without reservation sonos is the best piece of technology i have ever purchased and really THE one tech gadget my entire family can use without frustration. Well worth the $$ in the long run.

Damian March 4, 2011 at 3:29 pm

Right now I have two zones (ZP90 and S5). However, in reality I only have one zone (S5). I had the ZP90 connected to my AVR in my bedroom, serving as my wired sonos. However, I never used it because it requires using two remotes (i.e. one remote to operate the AVR and the second remote to operate the ZP90). This takes away much of the convenience that I like. I decided to just throw the ZP90 in another room just hidden connected to a switch for now. I plan on just getting another S5 for the bedroom to replace in the near future, and from there I will figure out how I want to expand next

I want to trial ur 60 day

charles brooks April 12, 2011 at 8:13 pm

I signed up for the 60daus I thought and was only given 5days why was this when ur ads claim 60 days

Damian April 13, 2011 at 7:16 am

I would definitely ask them what happened, as 5days doesn’t even seem like a normal trial period

Rick April 5, 2013 at 10:05 am

It’s a great deal, but the day you cancel you lose all of your songs from your iphone. What music service will allow me to keep the songs I download, even if I later cancel my subscription?
