Thumbs down Bye bye Mixcloud!

Mixcloud will limiting free listening users and trying to force them in their subscription model.

I knew this was coming sooner or later. Soundcloud went to the shitter several years ago. I don't know if it's greed or not but if former they maybe thought why not take the chance in this wonderful services subscription era. Everything from games, movies and music and their mom should have their own subscription service.

they have a pretty large library , often times i can find mixes from 2000-2010 that i loved listening to back in the day on there, so i might subscribe for that purpose, disney is coming out with their own streaming service soon to compete with netflix so that should be another amount to pay in the near future ..i wouldn't be surprised if some of these services start to come out bundled

From the link you provided:

quote:

In the coming months, this free playback streaming experience on Mixcloud will become slightly more limited. Itís important to us that, as a member of our community, you understand why.

The short answer is: so that we can keep up with the costs of running a streaming service that puts artists and creators at its core, and so we can build a sustainable platform that will be here for you in the long term.


Seems reasonable, I would guess running a streaming service is extremely expense, from the hosting and bandwidth costs, to website maintenance. The limits for the free streaming aren't that bad, tbh, and it seems like it is either this, or it will shut down at some point.

Only ever use Mixcloud as an absolute last resort if a particular set isn't available elsewhere. Awful, clunky interface that still seems to get stuck buffering even on my high performance work PC.

Heard about this and itís a bummer. I have probably 50 mixes up on my account there. Seemed inevitable though.

Their subscription model doesn't seem to cover those accounts that upload a ton of older dj sets... does that mean they'll be taken down since it's not the DJ that posted it themselves?

Hmm.
