To be honest, despite my initial expectations, I’m pleasantly surprised by the programming on Sonos Radio. In many ways, this is a unique offering -- no small feat in the crowded streaming media world.

The commercial breaks, though short, are frustrating. I’d be willing to pay for a commercial-free stream of Sonos Radio. Is that available or a potential offering for the future? 

Thanks

It isn’t available for a fee, though some stations are already commercial free.  Sonos hasn’t shared any future plans..  I would guess they’ll wait and see how popular the service gets before making changes like that.

That makes sense, @melvimbe, sure. I just want to register my interest in such an option with the powers that be. 

Surely there’s a cost associated with such streams, server, music rights, etc. How would you have Sonos cover those costs?

By offering us a paid, commercial-free option, @Airgetlam. As I said initially, “I’d be willing to pay for a commercial-free stream of Sonos Radio.” It would be no different than paying for Spotify, Sirius/XM or the other services already available.

It would require a substantial addition of process to the way Sonos currently conducts business, but I’m on board.
