Hong Kong digital TV - not too bad

MusicXS - what's the point of that, then?

There's a full page ad for MusicXS in the SCMP today, so I thought I would check it out.

It's a music download service, but you can only listen to the music for as long as you maintain your subscription.  For HK$56 per month you can listen on your PC.  For HK$96 you can also listen on your mobile phone (but only if you subscribe to Smartone 3G). 

That's right - you're out of luck if you wanted to listen on your iPod or any other MP3 player.

Well, thanks very much, Smartone-Vodafone.

So, assuming you're on a Windows box, get a copy of Audacity (free), play the music from MusicXS while Audacity makes an exact copy, and then save that copy as an MP3 file with the WinLAME library. Easy.


Well, yes, but that would be *illegal* use of the service, right? So if you are going to do something *illegal* why not just download the music in MP3 format and save all the messing about!
