no comment? that's okay I guess :/
Thanks, but it's more than just ads, they obviously bribe journalists to write shill reviews about them, last month I saw shill reviews about them in Vogue, Bloomberg, NY Times, Forbes, Financial Times in one week! I was listening to BBC music magazine podcast a few weeks ago and they were promoting them. This is a very fishy company. A company that doesn't cancel your subscription when you uninstall their service is a scam. Period.A combination of adblock plus and ublock origin will work wonders on issues like that.
I Google tons to classical music tips, and never see intrusive ads or emails.
I guess I get a lot from HDTracks, but I use the store frequently.
I'm sorry you're upset. But speaking as a private citizen and music lover... On complaints of this nature, I look at the complainers as much as the services, and some seem to make any problem that crops up even worse by their attitude or the way they deal with it. If there are paid articles promoting this classical music streaming service - which I doubt - there's no way of knowing for sure unless one asks them. It looks like what Idagio is trying to do is to stream classical music in the same way that pop music is being streamed. But no streaming service is going to survive with unhappy customers, especially in their start-up phase. So if it's a product I like and something goes wrong, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and contact them personally and find out what's going on at their end, and not with attitude. They are not going to continue to get good press if they are offering a lousy product or service... Some new businesses or services get publicity by sending out press releases, and some of the publications could have found out about Idagio through one of them and decided to write about it because it seems like a good idea. Not everyone is a mercenary journalist and you have no way of knowing for sure if someone has been bribed or paid to promote the service. It sounds like you're making that assumption because you're unhappy with their service and believe that no one would be writing about it otherwise. Most reputable publications look into whatever they're going to write about it because promoting a scam for a short-sighted profit would be a negative reflection on them. In any event, may your unhappiness be sorted out.looks like somebody already had the same experience an posted it on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/classicalmusic/comments/cudgr1
Yes. 'Somebody.'looks like somebody already had the same experience an posted it on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/classicalmusic/comments/cudgr1
valid point and I am not even mad because I might have guessed the same tbqh, but if you're following I posted a similar thread about ClassicFM here on Talkclassical FIVE MONTHS AGO. Classic FM website hate thread So this is not the first time I talk about the scummy techniques of companies. Also, what about all those negative reviews on Apple and Android stores? are all those by me? did I buy all these devices and then subscribed to the app such many times to write the same complaints? read yourself, the same complaints by this thread and the reddit's thread are in the store reviews https://appgrooves.com/app/idagio-classical-music-by-classical-music-streaming-idagio/negativeYes. 'Somebody.'
imo nothing wrong if you're aware that some company is evil but still pay for one of its products because you like it, but at least you're aware of itI use Amazon music. They seem to have most of what I look for. Yes amazon is a money thirsty unfeeling corporate mega giant that is in league with the US government to own your soul, but the music service is OK.
