eMusic.com 35 freebie mp3 downloads on sign up

I'm just testing this at the moment to see what its like. Deal is that you sign up for a 14 day trial and you can download 35 tracks for free, which you can keep when you cancel.

So far the sign up process is nothing unusual. They ask for a credit card when you sign up but I figure thats not too unsafe. After sign up I saw that there was a paypal option somewhere but I couldnt find it.

So far - the search interface is crap and the artist choice is more american than international. Having said that I'm slowly building a list of 35 tracks I want. Will feedback on the cancel process when I've downloaded my tracks.

    Something I just noticed is that it convert from a free trial to a 'paid subs' when you end of trial date is reached or you download your 35 freebie tracks (which means I'll leave one track spare and cancel).

    I clicked the link and tried to proceed (says 45 tracks) but got this:
    "We're sorry, eMusic is not available in your country."

    now it says the following (maybe we caused a meltdown lol):

    eMusic Temporarily Unavailable

    We're very sorry but eMusic is unavailable at the moment. Our engineering team is working to correct the problem as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience and apologize for this inconvenience.

    ha - I think its associated with CDWow somehow.

    I'm still getting the same "45 free music downloads" page and when I click "get started now" I get shunted through to the same page as before. Could you retype the exact url you're using? Are you using an http proxy service?

    Was just using the main link into it spodosaurus. http://www.emusic.com/

    I was accessing it from Spain. Might need to expire it - it may be a casualty of the draconian aus licensing laws. You may be able to come in off a UK / US / EU proxy and get in http://www.publicproxyservers.com/

    Yeah, it detects country location of the IP address registration and locks certain countries out.

    I loved emusic and used the american site all the time up untill about a year ago when it became unavailable here. It was great but if you are into big name artists you won't find them on there and the quality of download very very occasionally was dodge. Otherwise great site

    Yea - they dont have a lot of the mainstreamers in there. Its a crap interface - they really need to do some work on it.
