    "Use the free service.Few advantages with VIP membership"

    June 28, 2013   |   By orbie123

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Great variety of genres.

    Cons

    Paid over $70 for a membership and still get a very loud, annoying "Wolfman Jack" sounding dude who screams out the station ID and other useless information in between 2 to 3 songs. I wanted to use this station for my office and that is why I paid for the VIP membership. But this guys voice was intolerable, given that I was choosing relaxation/meditation music.

    Summary

    I am awaiting a refund which the station said they will provide. I will update this review if I don't get it.

    Updated on Jul 12, 2013

    I was treated VERY fairly by this company. They did their best to help me and when they couldn't, I was promptly issued a refund. I am impressed that an Internet company would work so quickly to resolve an issue :-) Two thumbs up :-)

    "WARNING! almost impossible to cancel & "no refunds""

    July 13, 2010   |   By AnonTip

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Crap service

    Cons

    live365 is a total scam and ripoff - the fact that these guys aren't in jail is a testimony to how many ripoff scams are on the internet. BUYER BEWARE!!!!

    Summary

    My experience with them sucks, and trying to cancel their "service" to stop fraudulent charges against your credit card is almost impossible.

    "Poor service for free users and not worth upgrade"

    February 02, 2010   |   By calsonic1

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Good selection of stations - but now many other services such as last.fm have a huge list of music too

    Cons

    too many ads - about 80-90% of their ads are their own, trying to convince you to sign up for the subscription service.
    inconsistent availability - sometimes you get the program...other times it just keeps trying to connect

    Summary

    When 365 first came out, it was a great tool. Now it is just one of many other online radio stations with "user playlists".

    My main two gripes are that for free users, the player goes in and out of availability. In other words, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When I upgraded, all I lost was ads...the problem with the player still persisted, even after multiple reinstallations. And no, they didn't give me a refund. I have a cable connection with a bandwidth monitor, and a 2.53Ghz processor, so I know it ain't my setup.

    As for the ads, almost all of them are messages trying to convince you to upgrade. Only a few are legitimate ads for a product or service. Its almost like they are actually trying to make your experience miserable so that you sign up for the paid service. But at $7.95 per month, it wasn't worth it to me to continue. That is too close to satellite radio prices. There are so many other alternatives out there.

    "Live365 Maybe Wrong Way To Go!"

    January 01, 2010   |   By shiville1

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Easy to Use

    Cons

    It's a Juke Box nothing more.Most the time I don't think you are online. They make you believe you are online by tricks. If you sign up for 6 months and you decide to cancel the next month. You can cancel but you won't get any of your money back.

    Summary

    If you store alot of music on their playlist they can block you from deleting any of the music stored there.They keep telling you that you are playing too many songs by the same artist when you are not and then they tell you by email they are taking you off the air. I don't remember them giving an agreement for cancellation procedures.I don't remember them tell you when you sign up how many listeners you can have.

    "GREAT online music"

    August 14, 2009   |   By DH1

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Every type of music is available. (Something like 5000 stations.) Pick your mood and pick the station/music to match.

    Cons

    I gave Live365 four stars instead of five because I think $7.95/month is a bit overpriced. I *might* pay $2 or 3.

    Summary

    I Googled looking for some reviews (specifically feedback) from users who have "upgraded" from the free stream to the VIP membership to see if they thought it was worth it. Albeit a brief search I couldn't find any.

    For now, I'll continue to put up with an occasional, short ad and save the bucks.

    BTW, I listen to Live365 daily!
