Hello;
I found this site while trying to find some online music as my regular site (WCRB out of Boston)is changing or upgrading their online streaming. I really like this site except for the ballgame. I heard some great music I haven't heard in years! Although I commend this station for supporting their local sports teams I do not want to listen to a ballgame over the internet.
Earlier I saw an option to pay for commercial free streaming and no longer see it. Is it still there? And if it is do we still get the ballgame or is it replaced with some of this great music?

Thank you.

Warren.

Hello Warren-

Thanks for listening. The sports games are a huge money maker for us and in these tough times we need to make all the money we can. (We all just took pay cuts here.) We understand the sports may not be what you want to listen to so we keep the commercial free, subscription service - game free. At the moment we are upgrading the security on the subscription service so we are not taking credit cards as payment. But what you can do is visit the subscription service, fill out the information for a membership and when you get to the payment options click to pay by check. You can can then print the form and mail it to us with your check. That way we can process your account in house and bypass the credit card option. (Most people have actually signed up for memberships by check and not credit card. I think most people are starting not to trust the internet with $$$ anymore... can't blame folks.) So you can sign up by check and it is easy and simple. If you have questions please let me know or send an email to the help desk - helpme@beethoven.com

Here is the link to the sign up page: https://www.beethoven.com/member/register_new.php
