Frequently asked questions
Q: What is 8tracks Plus?
Q: Why would I pay for radio?
Of course, your payment also helps 8tracks cover its costs of operation. We're grateful for our 8tracks Plus subscribers; they're like an extended part of the 8tracks family. We do our best to return the love and support that our Plus subscribers give us!
In the future, we plan to offer several DJ-focused features for 8tracks Plus subscribers, such as profile customization and mix analytics. We'd love to hear from you regarding what other premium features you'd find valuable.
Q: What does it cost?
Q: How does the free trial work?
Even if you cancel during your free trial, you will continue to receive the benefits of 8tracks Plus until 14 days have elapsed.
Q: I see you also offer an ad-free subscription via in-app purchase on iOS...at a different price. What's up with that?
If all you want is ad-free listening *on iOS only,* you can sign up for that via an in-app purchase on iOS (and it will cost you a little less than 8tracks Plus: $20 for 1 year). However, in that case you'll still see ads when you tune in from other platforms, such as the website.
Example #1: You sign up for 8tracks Plus, right here, right now. You never will encounter another ad on *any* 8tracks platform (web, Android app, iOS app, everything), for 6 months. It costs you $12.
Example #2: You sign up for ad-free while using our iOS app, via in-app purchase. It will remove ads from your iOS experience, but you still will encounter ads on the website, on Android, etc. This lasts for 12 months, and costs you $20.
