  2. Wow, this is our second comment in, like… EVAR. Thanks :)

    “Get access to unlimited music for as long as you maintain an active subscription.”

    Are you as stymied by this as we are? If the music is, as they say, DRM-free how could Rogers possibly control what we do with it? Are they assuming we don’t know how to transfer files off of our devices…?

    It must be streamed, thus making their DRM-free claims a crock of shit.
