Freegal – why can I only stream some of the songs? Not download them?

With Freegal, you can download 6 songs per week, or stream 3 hours of music per day.

Usually, you can stream a song, or download it (and keep it forever) or both.

Some songs you can only stream. Here’s how you can tell:

When you click the three horizontal lines, to the right of the title of a song, you’ll see a pop-up box.

Freegal - a song you can only stream

If the box has 2 choices: “Add to Playlist” and “Add to Wishlist”, that means you can only stream that song, using the blue arrow to the left of the title.

If you click the three lines and…

A Freegal song you can both stream and download

the box has THREE choices: “Download Now”, “Add to Playlist” and “Add to Wishlist”, that means you can both stream AND download that song.

Why are some songs different? The song’s publisher decides what you can do with that song. They’re the ones who decide if you can ONLY stream the song, or both stream AND download the song.
