Got an account a few year ago, before they were bought out. They had a good amount of tracks (less then ITunes, but still good). Song quality was great and it was basically what made them a little better then the other alternatives. Now more than half of the tracks I bought are no longer available because of "copy right infringement". On their help section they address this issue by saying that according to their licensing contract they have to remove tracks when requested by artists. According to them that's why you need to download the songs and make backup copies of it, because they may be pullout out anytime.
Alright... Where should we start? You sink money for legally downloaded songs (use to be part of HMV) that can just stop being legal anytime they wish?! Yo.. Where's the product I bought?? Where's my compensation for loosing my product?? Where's my money?? At least make it less than iTunes to be somewhat competitive for my risk of loosing the money I'm giving you. As for the "download your songs" stupidity, it's 2015! You're an online downloading song service. If I wanted to save my music outside of the cloud, I'd buy a record or CD. Thankfully, I didn't buy too many of their product but I'll go to a professional service like iTunes that will keep your music forever in the clouds. What kind of joke company is this bs?
In summary, I would not recommend 7 Digital to a friend.
