    Does anyone know how to stream from Rhapsody?

    I have a subscription to Rhapsody, and enjoy it greatly from home or my PC. I was wondering if anyone knew how to stream music from Rhapsody to the beastie?

    I asked them, and they say it cannot be done. Does anyone have a better idea?

    Thanks!

    Here is a summary of my exchange with them:

    Original Email:

    I have a WM6 PDA/Phone device with an unlimited data plan. Can I stream music to it from Rhapsody? I can do internet radio with Windows Media Player on the phone, so it seems I should be able to do it.

    Response:

    The response from Rhapsody support was correct. You can't stream Rhapsody to a WM6 phone (or any other MS Mobile OS for that matter). If you have Rhapsody ToGo, you can download subscription music to your phone...which essentially gives you an unlimited playlist.

    I have rhapsody also and i'm guessing because the back end is realplayer that would also be one of the reasons why you can't stream plus i don't think wm6 supports the helix DRM technology from real. Sorry can't be anymore helpful.
