Yahoo Music Service Raising Prices Again…


Received this in my inbox this morning.  While the Yahoo music service may indeed be less expensive than similar offerings, it’s now effectively “too expensive” for what you get.  Combine their price increase with their slow p.o.s. music player and I’m cancelling the service.

Greetings Yahoo! Music Unlimited Subscriber,
We’d like to give you a heads up about an upcoming change to Yahoo! Music Unlimited.
On November 14, 2006, the cost of a new Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscription will increase from $6.99 to $8.99 per month. Despite this price increase, Yahoo! Music Unlimited will still offer the lowest price of any major subscription music service — now with a catalog of more than 2 million songs!
Because you’re a valued subscriber, we’re extending your current rate for an extra month and your credit card will not be charged at the new rate until after December 13, 2006. We’re also giving you an opportunity to upgrade to an annual subscription before November 14, 2006 and lock in the current low price of $4.99 per month (billed in one installment of $59.88). Click here to upgrade to an annual subscription.
To view or edit your account, log in at using your Yahoo! ID and password. If you do not want to subscribe to Yahoo! Music Unlimited at the new rate, you must cancel your subscription before December 14, 2006. If you have more questions, you may contact Customer Care.
Thanks for using Yahoo! Music Unlimited.
– The Yahoo! Music Team

  2. We knew it was going to happen at some point. Go with Rhapsody, it’s a better program anyway.


  3. Yep, money just has to ruin it every time … unless you have it of course!
