Worth reading just for this.
Streaming also has no privacy, like downloads they know who you are. But worse they know when and where you are.
Broadcast Radio may not have "On Demand" selection, but it's free and anonymous. For listening to whole albums worth (which is advantage of 1948 LP invention) buying a CD is better. It's anonymous, don't need Internet connections and after the first time it's free.
Buying single track MP3s is like buying 78s (worse as they had a B side), existing since about 1898 and could be HiFi by 1936. 45s Replaced 78s in 1949.
So now they want us to rent the music and uniquely identify us, and also when and where we listen?
Streaming Music Services are something the Characters running the show in Brave New World or 1984 would have been proud of.
I'll stick to CDs and making my own MP3 playlists for the phone (or laptop into HiFi). The cheap £5 CE legal MP3 FM Transmitters handy for using a good portable FM Stereo Radio with Satellite / TV Set box / Laptop etc music (works to FM tuner in Phone too).
