With access to the Sony Music Entertainment catalog, it offers hundreds of thousands of songs, over 100 genres of music, and more than 50 record labels, all without having to download software or have any digital rights management (DRM) issues to deal with.

Information & Tips

  • The Freegal Mobile App is available for Android and iOS devices.  Users can download and listen directly from their portable device.
  • Current limits are set at five downloads per week. Your counter will set back to zero each week, Monday morning. Then you can download three more tunes during the new week.
  • When you’re ready to download a track, click the “Download Now” link, select Save at the prompt, and designate where you want to save the song. Anytime you click on the “Download now” link, even if you cancel the download, the download counts toward your weekly allotment.
  • Find bands that begin with “The” in their name, alphabetized under the letter “T.”
  • Once in a while, your Internet connection may be interrupted or time out and you might experience an incomplete or problem download. Freegal Music allows you to download previously downloaded songs again, without using up one of your weekly downloads.
