Grooveshark Anywhere + T-Shirt (Including Delivery to UK) + Cheaper Subscription Renewal

29
Found 9th Jan 2011
First Deal so go easy

I'm sure most people know what Grooveshark is but for those who don't:

"Grooveshark, the internationally-available online music search engine and music recommendation web software application, allowing users to search for and stream music, for free, that can be played immediately or added to a playlist"

"Grooveshark offers a subscription service called VIP for a monthly fee of $3.00 USD, or $30 USD for one year, until December 1 2010. After 1 December 2010 the price increases to $6/month (or $60/year) for Grooveshark VIP, and $9/month ($90/year) for Grooveshark Anywhere.[8] VIP services provides additional functions, most notable is the removal of banner ads along the right side of the Grooveshark applet. The VIP service also includes smaller enhancements, such as the ability to use fullscreen mode, crossfading of songs, interface personalization, scrobble songs to last.fm pages, and more. VIP services also offers access to their mobile application, currently available for Android, Palm, Nokia, and Blackberry devices. After 1 december, the support for mobile devices isn't available anymore for Grooveshark VIP users, only for Grooveshark Anywhere users. In the past, an iPhone app was available, but Apple removed the app from the iTunes App Store, due to a lawsuit between Grooveshark LLC and Universal Music Group. A Grooveshark application written for Adobe AIR, called Grooveshark desktop, is also available for Linux, PC, and Mac."



If you buy one of their TShirts (some styles out of stock but others have some left) you get a free Grooveshark Anywhere Subscription for a year as well as being able to renew at the cheaper (what it used to be) rate of $30/£19 rather than $90.

You can get this even cheaper if you don't actually want the TShirt or have relatives in the US as you could get it delivered somewhere in America and save $8.50 worth of shipping.

This is excellent for people who have an Android phone (such as the Orange San Francisco- like me) and want to able to stream music anywhere. I prefer this to Spotify as its cheaper and there are no music restrictions on different regions.

Great deal and very tempting, although I already have a Spotify subscription for another year... :\

Does this include offline playback?

It includes everything you can get with Grooveshark, it supports offline playback on mobile devices but for now there is no caching on computer version as Grooveshark say it is too easy to steal the songs once cached however they claim they are looking into this.

Just bought this for use with Android, pity about the shipping. should have just chosen a random American shipping address as I'm not too bothered about a t-shirt.

iphone app if you have a jailbroken iphone only.

I use it on the PC and I'm expecting delivery of a certain android phone tomorrow. I'll be looking to get this I think. Hope the battery holds up. Heat added.

Sounds great.

errrr - help paid it but I dont see where the code is anyone?

Search for Grooveshark on the Market, you will find the app there. You download it and login once you've activated your Grooveshark Anywhere account on the PC. Then away you go

Good deal. I went to re-new my account last week, but then saw the prices had gone up.

Was thinking of getting the t-shirt sent to Grooveshark HQ, but figured they might catch on. So it's gone to Downtown Disney in Florida :-)

The code had better arrive in my email and not via the post

Mine took around 20 hours I think. Remember they are running on american time so it will probably be dispatched some time late evening/early morning for us. Thanks for the heat

Anyone else recieved theirs yet? Has been 2 and a half days, and nothing yet

As in code or the TShirt? The code will be in the email as soon as your TShirt is dispatched so should have come by now. If its the TShirt you might have to wait a while seeing as its being shipped from america I would give it 8-10 days

Okay. I just read up on the site, and I think it's Grooveshark that actually dispatch the shirts, so they probably saw the address I sent it to (Disney) and thought it was a joke.

lmao, you dispatched to Disney!? You probably should have done a believable address ;), i'm sure it'll be fine though as soon as your sort out the delivery address you will get the code just give them an email or something

Hahahaha I also dispatched to Disney just 'cause I read that you done it and I assumed it had worked for you, they emailed me back saying they were confused on where they wanted it shipped! Haha so just went on some random American property and sent them that address instead and it worked! Got the code like 15 hours later.

Thanks alot Mit321, using this app a tonne with my San Francisco!

Thanks, will try emailing them again as they didn't respond to my last mail.

Just noticed though, that if I try and upgrade my account to 'Anywhere', it's just asking for 3$ per month (the old rate )

Thats strange mine says 1 year free and then If I did want to pay its saying $9 :/, though apparently if I do want to renew the next year it'll only cost $30.

Got the t-shirt today. Fast delivery - pretty poor quality t-shirt though. Not that it matters

I want to try this but what about the legalities of the service? The T&Cs basically say that users mustnt upload copyrighted music but arent stopped; music is only removed on a track by track basis by request of the record company/artist. That means you could be listening to loads of stuff illegally without realizing it and the GS T&Cs state that if this is the case then when the lawsuits come knocking they will pass the buck on to you.

You aren't gonna get into trouble for listening to stuff on there, just like if you listened to stuff on youtube which then got taken down by the record company for copyright infringement, just don't go uploading stuff on there

GREAT - thanks for this. Massive saving and amazingly my nephew in the States REALLY likes the t shirt!

Help! Year deal expired and can't seem to renew at same price anyone else managed to?

emailed support and sorted $30 for the year - tremendous. Great service great support - well recommended
