Last.fm not free?

Been listening to last.fm in the UK , just told I have run out of plays and i need to subscribe? Nowhere did it say i would be charged, is there a legal way round this?

Unfortunately not!

Last.fm is only free when using a browser on Windows or Mac. In other environments it is chargeable. This was a change made by last.fm some time ago.

Big shame. If i keep atv flash it is worth paying 60p a week, i guess

I do not use last.fm on my ATV2 because I would have to pay for I, but can get it for free on my Onkyo AV receiver. However the other aTV Flash components more than justify the cost of the software far as I am concerned.

Just a thought, could I use last.fm on my ipad via Safari (or Google) and then Airplay it to the ATV?
