So you have a nice new home theater with an absolutely amazing sound system, but your music collection is a little lacking. With the focus on music streaming services these days, you really need to do your homework before signing up for one. Here are the things you should look for in a music streaming service.
How Big is the Selection?
While most streaming services’ libraries are comparable, some focus on different aspects. One may boast the newest and most popular music, while others may focus on creating custom playlists based on your interests. If there’s an artist whose music you just can’t live without, make sure the service offers their work before signing up.
Is It Compatible
After spending time and money having a wonderful new home theater installed you don’t want to sign up for something only to find out that it’s not compatible with a part of your system. Whether it’s your receiver that doesn’t support the service or even your tablet that controls your system, this is an easy problem to avoid but can cause a real headache if you don’t look into it beforehand.
How Much Does it Cost? Any Deals?
Having a huge library of music at your fingertips is one of the most amazing aspects of our connected world, so don’t be surprised if some services seem a little pricey. On the flip side, make sure you’re getting your money’s worth. Working on a degree? Have a family that loves listen to different kinds of music? Many music streaming services offer discounts and packages that make them more affordable.
Can You Store Music?
Some services give you the option of storing music on your device. If you are ever out of range for your home’s WiFi, like outback for instance, or the internet goes out you will still be able to play whatever is on your device.
