Playback limitations for free listeners are essential for maintaining Mixcloud as a fair and legal streaming service that genuinely supports the people behind the music.
As a free listener without a Premium subscription or without a direct subscription to a creator channel, you'll have the ability to seek backward up to three times and seek forward up to three times within a 60-minute period. Please be aware that every 60 minutes, these seeking restrictions will reset, allowing you to use six seeks again.
The good news is that you can lift these playback limitations by subscribing to Premium or directly to a creator's channel. For more information about subscriptions, view the article What subscription plans are available on Mixcloud?
What if the show says it isn't available in my country?
Some shows also contain copyrighted content that cannot be enabled for free users due to our music licensing agreements.
How can I listen without any limitations?
By upgrading to Mixcloud Premium, you will be able to enjoy public content without limits or interruptions site-wide on any channel.
You can also subscribe directly to an individual creator channel with Channel Subscriptions to enjoy unlimited, uninterrupted audio on that channel. Your Channel subscription directly supports the creator, plus the artists and music played in their shows.
