Three PCs but no devices
This service's main drawback--the same one RealOne MusicPass suffers--is that you can enjoy songs only from your PC. Music Now lets you sync your download list on as many as three computers, but that's it. You can't burn to disc, and you can't transfer songs to a portable player, as you can with BurnItFirst. And you can download songs only in WMA format and play them only on Windows Media Player, which will install during setup if you don't already have it. Worse, you don't even get to keep the songs you've downloaded. After your membership ends, you can't access your songs. That's no fun. With eMusic, you can keep your downloads.
Plain as vanilla
Unfortunately, beyond its basic services, Music Now is simply dull. It lacks any of the special features that jazz up other subscription apps, and it doesn't even provide the community areas, such as message boards, that you find with Pressplay. Hopefully, Music Now will gain some color as it grows and adds new features, but for now, we'd rather leave it than take it.
