Can I share my Premium account with friends or family?

Your support enables us to continue building a better service. We encourage everyone who enjoys our service to pay for their own Premium account. Your Premium account can be used in multiple places or on multiple devices, as long as only one connection is active at any given moment.

Our system detects multiple connections by the same account and will disconnect all additional listeners.

Technical Issues

My audio keeps dropping out or buffering.

  1. Ensure your connection is not saturated with downloads, system updates, or other users sharing same the connection.
  2. Test a different channel.
  3. Test a lower bit-rate stream of the same channel.
  4. Connect from a different network.
    (Free wi-fi networks can be notoriously intermittent.)
  5. Stream video from another service like YouTube or Hulu.
