These changes also mean that we are retiring our own on-demand track streaming, which we’ve run for the last two years in the US, UK, and Germany.

Update: Matthew Ogle from clarifies that this does not affect radio streaming. What they killed is playing a song on demand, which Sonos did not support anyway.


I don't understand their language.

So we won't be able to use on Sonos anymore. Oh, that's very sad. Listening to it right now.

The change affects single track playback only (both what we called “on demand” and “full-length preview”) — radio still streams full-length music as it always has!

Not sure what this means: Can i still Listen to on my squeezebox? That is: my Music, neighbours, recommandations. Can i still start à Station?

This change doesn't affect Radio (on iPhone, Sonos, Squeezebox, the web, and everywhere else) -- in fact it will let us focus even more on it in future. Radio streaming is quite a different beast from on-demand (single track) playback.

Matthew Ogle, 2010-04-12 has published an update - indeed the Sonos functionality seems not to be affected. They want to differentiate from Napster which is a true on-demand streaming service.

Thanks, Matthew for clarifying.

I'm really happy that radio streaming is not affected. It's my favorite "playlist" for my Sonos system.
