From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

These are lists of online music databases:


Online music stores

An online music store is an online business that sells audio files, usually music, on a per-song and/or subscription basis. It may be differentiated from some online music databases that offer music streaming in that music stores offer the actual music file, while streaming services offer partial or full listening without actually providing a file for downloading. However, music stores generally offer partial streaming previews, some even with full-length playback.

8 million [1]

Full-length music streaming services

Music streaming services offer listening without the listener actually owning the source file.[citation needed] Music streaming is limited to devices connected to the Internet, but is, on the other hand, cheaper than buying a music file, mostly even free of charge.
