Hi
Is there a suggestion and or a list for legal music streaming services available for my coffee shop?

I know there was a Sonos-compatible business-compatible service a few years ago as my doughnut shop used it (and they used their public wifi for it, ahem). More recently I did some research for a friend and Spotify Business was not Sonos-compatible. There was another service and that too required special hardware. You might have to resort to a service with custom hardware then use line-in to Sonos, which kind of sucks.

Thanks for the insight.

Thanks for that
Any idea how deep the music library is in terms of artists or am I relegated to listening to just industry driven music channels? Cheers

Its a radio type service. Some of the channels are industry driven, but there are others that are not. Depends on what genre you are looking for. Here's a PDF of the business stations on Sonos:

The DJ and interruption free stations would probably be what you are looking for. You could e-mail them with station names and ask for a curated list of artists/tracks for the last day or so to give you an idea of the content.
We have been using a service called Jukeboxy Music for Business at our retail shop. I found them through Sonos music services, very happy with the music selection. Have you tried them?
