Music licensing is complex. Your free listening experience is limited in order for us to keep running Mixcloud as a fair and legal streaming service that supports the people behind the music.
If you are a free listener without a Premium subscription, or you are not subscribed directly to a creator channel with Mixcloud Select, then you will experience the following limitations:
- You won’t be able to seek backwards in a show
- You won’t be able to listen to a single show more than 3 times within a 14 day period
- You won’t be shown tracklists in advance
You can lift these limitations by subscribing to either Mixcloud Premium or Mixcloud Select.
What if the show says it isn't available in my country?
Some shows also contain copyrighted content which cannot be enabled for free users due to our music licensing agreements. You can listen to these shows by upgrading to a Premium or Select subscription.
How do I get an unlimited, uninterrupted listening experience?
By upgrading to Mixcloud Premium, you will be able to listen without limits or interruptions across the entire site.

You can also subscribe directly to a creator channel with Mixcloud Select to enjoy unlimited, uninterrupted audio on a specific channel. Your Select subscription directly supports the creator, plus the artists and music played in their shows.
