Important Changes for Hype Machine on Sonos

On June 13, 2016, Hype Machine on Sonos will only be available to SoundCloud Go premium subscribers in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

To keep using Hype Machine on your Sonos device, there are three steps:

  1. Sign up for SoundCloud Go.
  2. Connect your Hype Machine account to your SoundCloud account. After you link the accounts, your Go status will be visible on this page.
  3. Make sure to use this Hype Machine account in your Sonos controller.

Much of the music shared by bloggers that you’ve been able to discover on Hype Machine is hosted on SoundCloud. We’ve been SoundCloud supporters from the very beginning (2008? it has been quite a while), and as their service changes, we are excited to continue to play a role in its growth. Each new Go subscriber enables SoundCloud to better support artists who share music on their service.

Get in touch if you have questions.

UPDATE 6/13/2016: As mentioned above, these availability changes are now live.

UPDATE 9/14/2016: SoundCloud Go is now available in Australia and New Zealand, so you can link accounts and use Hype Machine on Sonos there.

UPDATE 10/19/2016: SoundCloud Go is now available in Canada.
