What's Urge

After a 14-day free trial period, users could subscribe to the all-inclusive All Access to Go service for $14.99 per month. This provided the ability to have access to more than two million songs, which could be downloaded to two portable devices. The All Access services allowed subscribers to have the service without the option of transporting music to a device.

Urge and Rhapsody
