People Seeking Free Music Downloads Can Find an Alternative With Low Cost Subscriptions

Allot of people are looking for a way to download free music to put on their iPod, computer or other music player. Many of these music lovers begin by trying P2P (peer to peer) software which let’s you share mp3 files with other users. The problem is that almost all P2P programs have viruses, adware and spyware installed in them and will cause problems with your computer. Also, these programs have become much more strict with the music you are allowed to share because the developers do not want to be responsible for violating copyright laws. The users themselves have become more concerned with breaking the law and so the result is that there is a lot less music available on these networks.

Another way that you can find free music downloads is on sites like Myspace that allow artists to indicate which songs are free for people to download. The problem with this is that the user needs to search through hundreds of unknown bands in order to find one worth listening too. So what is a person with a music player with extra space to do?

If you seek out the traditional paid download sites like iTunes the cost per song can add up quick if you have hundreds of gigabytes to fill. The alternative is to use low cost mp3 music download subscription sites that charge a monthly fee. With these programs the price per song can be as low as 1/3 of other websites that charge for individual songs. An additional positive aspect of the subscription model is that many of the sites provide a sign up bonus of free songs. So for people seeking free, legal and virus-free music downloads, they may need to settle for paying for an inexpensive subscription until a better solution comes on the market.
