Thanks for your comments guys. I've just added this step-by-step process to the guide:

How to get this

You wont see the offer on the site, but Rdio's confirmed in writing to us that itll work for everyone. To get it
  1. Go to the Rdio* site
  2. Put your name and email address in (or sign up via Facebook)
  3. Wait for a confirmation email
  4. Click through to the site from the confirmation email
  5. You'll have unlimited access for a week on a seven-day free trial
  6. When the seven days has ended, the six-month free trial will automatically kick in. Do note, this trial is only for PC and Macs, not mobile apps.
At no point do you need put in any card/payment details anywhere to get the free trial, so when the trial ends, that's it, you won't be charged.


The six-month free trial is also available to Rdio users who have previously taken a seven-day trial. Just login to your account and the six-month trial will automatically begin.



I hope that helps,
MSE Becca

Default Rdio trail is 6 days not 6 months- don't be misled

Tried it myself on iphone but as soon as i clicked on the link it turned from 6 months to 6days!!! I then looked at the reviews in on the app store and saw a majority of people had left negative reviews due to being misled about trial period and when you take out full paid membership it doesnt appear to work!!
Mse should update their site to avoid more people being let down by this

Hi Adey,

It's only the
pc/mac trial that's 6 months, not the mobile app. We do mention in the guide, but will bold it to try to make it clearer.

Thanks

Hi

Under settings area (click the arrow next to your name in top right of screen)

Once in settings click on external tab and uncheck the Share the songs you play on Facebook box.

Am now in the 'six month free trial' period and all I seem to be able to get is twenty five second snatches of all the songs! Not great....is anyone else having the same issue. Using it on an iPad. Thanks

I am listening now to a long forgotten album. So far it's great but 'Crunch Time' comes next week when my weeks trial ends. Hopefully the next six month free will kick in. I just wish there was a way of saving the library I have created on to my Hard Drive.

I signed up for this but not via the link on here and wasn't asked for payment. Found it was OK and got full length songs, did get some songs that just wouldn't not sure why.

Just trying it now and its better.

Hi SueCal,

Thanks for your post. As the six-month free trial is only for using the service on PCs, this is why you're only getting snippets of songs when trying to use it on an iPad.

If you want to listen for free, you will have to use the service on your PC/Mac.



Hope that helps,

MSE Becca

How does it look like when the 6-month trial kicks in? My 7-day trial ended, and now my web browser on my non-Windows, non-Mac, Linux PC, which shouldn't make any difference really, says "You're out of free music until March 27, 2013. Subscribe now for unlimited music and get 14 days free."

Should the 6-month thing kick in instantly, or is there a delay? As a side note, a few tracks before I ran out rdio.com crashed a few times. It worked perfectly for the entire week prior.

Edit: my Virtualbox with my originally-French-but-now-Frenglish Windows XP (that I bought for 22 quid on eBay and has a genuine retail licence, package and hologram CD, not from the other thrift web site, The Pirate Bay) shows the same thing.
I like to read Ts&Cs, and I like talking to salespeople until they get bored.

The free service only has a limited amount of hours of music available! I have used it extensively for about 10 days now and the amount of free music you are allowed has expired.

Need to wait until 27th March! Its a good service, shame about the limit on the music per month! Understandable though!

I enjoyed the first week especially, syncing stuff to my mobile easily and for free. It's less good without that and I'm fast running out of time.
