I am just wondering if anybody would pay 1 bitcoin per year to be able to download music legally, for a year. 30 day free trial.

You will be able to make a playlist, and will be able to use it on most smart phones (through an application). It's legal in the US, Canada, United Kingdom, and Internationally. 30 day trial is limited to 20 downloads, once you pay your allowed to download unlimited amounts (one song every 20 seconds).

This is a streaming only service (or download to mobile only?)?

Again, file formats.  Bitrate for the audio.  Need specific details please.

Streaming & downloading, you can only download on phones that allow downloading.

Formats of files: MP3

Bitrate depends on the file, good quality though.

How about a mining for music service - as long as I keep sending 100Mhash/s of shares, the music stream with the songs I pick keeps playing. That's the only thing you aren't allowed to do in most countries with absolutely free Internet radio: narrowcast one stream to one user with just the songs they pick.

If a file is being downloaded on the mobile, why is this function not offered on the computer?   Is this through a service you have set up yourself or will you be giving an account to an already established music service?

Good idea, but I'm trying to make it an alternative payment. Instead of credit card.

The thing is, you can't have just Bitcoins as a payment method. Very few people know bitcoins and for your business to succeed you must accept other payment options. So with don't you set it up at a price that most people are willing to pay (not only geek bitcoin users) and then come back here?

I disagree.  You will be entering competition with the big boys, stay the course Exo!, Bitcoin only services (I still don't understand what you are doing fully, but I'm sure the fact that you take Bitcoin as payment is the reason you started this 'service' lol)

OK so now think, how many people know bitcoins? From that number, how many people actually uses them (either mines, trades or buys stuff)? From that number, how many people love music enough to pay a annually amount for it?

I honestly don't think that is worth it. I don't choose services based on payment method. I choose them with base on price and quality. If OP's service has quality and is cheap I will pay him with  Zimbabwean dollars if I have to.

To be super honest here, I do not believe the general Bitcoin market does not purchase music in nearly any form.  I would love to see a poll.

I'm so sorry. I didn't read your other post. Well, if you have everything set up, is it hard to add bitcoin as a payment method? You have nothing to loose I guess...

I am having trouble deciphering this sentence. Can you re-word it in the form of "I believe..."?
