    I don't like the whole streaming thing. It requires an internet connection and if they pull what I wanted to listen too then too bad I guess. :(

    I think that Spotify Premium has feature to download music and podcasts to listen offline later. Stitcher (podcast app) has this feature for sure.
    On the other hand knowing that streaming service may pull out content at every given time is not funny at all. In addition streaming is not privacy friendly.

    I've had that experience with Netflix. I would be half way through a series and it would disappear. It is a major reason why I cancelled.
