No legal online radio stations allow downloads. A handful of free online music services allow music streaming with either monthly payments or integrated advertisements serving as the payment. Pandora, Spotify, and iHeartRadio are among the best known online radio services.
Although it does not allow downloads, Spotify's radio service lets users hear more of what they like through its "thumbs up or thumbs down" personalization feature. IHeartRadio lets music-lovers access more than 1,500 radio stations for free through the Internet and gives users the power to let DJs know what they like through a system similar to the Spotify system.
