    Where do you get your music? 9th Jun 17 at 2:00 PM
    I'm going on holiday soon so that's what has got me thinking about this. Also how do you listen to it - on your phone/ipod/mp3 player?

    For all I use it I've been using Spotify on my phone (the free version) but would be keen to find out if there was a way to listen to music without having to stream it?

    wow thanks for all the replies. Looks like streaming is the way forward.

    I've already used Spotify premium so not eligible for the 99p offer but I'll still look in to it if it means being able to download for offline listening. Thanks again all.

    I use my Amazon prime subscription - I get a load of music that can be downloaded from their streaming service - either on my tablet or phone.

    That's supplemented by my Mp3 collection from ripped CDs

    I predominantly use Apple Music to stream tracks.

    If I like something enough (after a few listens) then I'll purchase it via iTunes.
