Newsletter No.84
June 16, 2004

Naxos.com has become successful beyond our expectations.
Last month, we streamed 600,000 tracks to our subscribers free of charge.

This has placed a tremendous burden on our infrastructure and driven up our bandwidth cost.
Originally, we introduced the free track-by-track listening service to allow our customers to sample our recordings and help them decide which ones they like and want to purchase. These days, however, more and more people simply use Naxos.com as a Free listeing site, which was never intended.

As a result , we see ourselves forced to limit streaming to only 25% of each track, which is still far more generous than any other classical website.

If subscribers wish to continue listening to complete tracks, they can do so by paying only US$19.95 / €19.95 per year, which is just enough to cover our infrastructure and bandwidth costs. Click here to subscribe!
