The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Thumbs up in Australia

Hi, I'm devastated that Pandora pulled out. Could you tell me which services in Australia I can use the thumbs up and down buttons for? Any of them free?
Cheers,
Liam

Hi Liam,

 

Thanks for the post.  As of right now, there are no free services for Australia, but the engineering team is working on adding more services.  

 

As far as for functionality of the thumbs up and down buttons, I believe you can use those with Spotify radio stations.

 

Thanks,

Brandon

Re: Thumbs up in Australia

Well, there are free services such as TuneIn and Internet Radio.  

On the other hand you can also use other free services vis BT such as YouTube, Spotify (add supported), or really any other free service through BT connection (or airplay for the earlier systems).

 

Unfortunately I think it was Pandoras "free" option being too good that caused them to leave AU/NZ.  With that service being add supported, it would be hard in australias market to get the revenue to be profitable.  I honestly only heard an add once a month or so and I couldn't see the extra benefits for me to have the premium version. Whereas there's no-one I know that uses the unpaid version of Spotify - it gives much better capabilities for a small monthly fee.

Re: Thumbs up in Australia

Thanks Morlock. I particularly liked being able to thumbs up and down on the remote with Pandora. I suspected paying for Spotify was the only other way to make use of those buttons. Thanks for clarifying.
