    Anyone subscribe to these or both. I subscribe to Apple music and also doing the monthly trial on the Amazon Music. I still like the user interface on the Apple better..simple/clean. However the Amazon music is cheaper if you have Prime. Amazon is claiming more titles than Apple Music, and they got right to Garth Brooks. What do you guys use?

    I only use XM. Don't really stream anything. I find it hard to believe Amazon has more music than Apple. Doesn't mean it's not true, but hard to believe.

    I'm old school. I use this thing called a "radio." It came pre-installed in my truck and everything.:cool:

    I do have a Nano for when I run, but I just ripped the music CDs I have for the music on it.

    I just use Pandora. I don't really listen to the radio any more. Best part is if on a road trip...I won't have to search for stations along the way.:D

    Ditto, but, mostly because my wife subscribes. It can be kind of annoying when we both try to listen to music at the same time 'cuz it gives you the option of overriding the other device.
    I do like that I can make play lists and send them to the kiddo.

    For an extra $5 a month upgrade to the family plan so you can have 5 unique login accounts.

    I've concluded that Amazon Music is better..the ability to add songs from their library continually and start creating a live virtual playlist is really cool..while you are listening to one song you can search another song and add it to play next or add into your play queue..

    I too have Amazon music unlimited. This service rocks. So much cheaper than the CDs I was buying.
    Able to listen to new music and download onto my phone for listening in my car, or while riding the MTB on the trails. :)

    Me too. I'm thinking of doing the 3 month trial on Apple music to see how much I like it and how many extra artists there are vs Spotify.
