I’m about to show you how to listen get Rhapsody Canada.
Believe me, Rhapsody will be music to your ears.
You see, probably as you already know, that Rhapsody is typically not available about of the USA.
In fact, if you head over to their website right now you will be one of the many Canadians that only get to see this ugly image:
But not me! Nope, when I go to the Rhapsody website from Canada (after deploying the special trick I’m about to show you) I see this delightful image of the sign up page 🙂
And that means I have total access to Rhapsody’s library of 16 millions songs for either streaming or downloads (WITHOUT ADDS!).
You can too see this awesome image even if you live in Canada (or anywhere else outside the US). The best news is that you don’t need to be a computer hack or programmer to also get full access to Rhapsody Canada.
It’s really quite simple… let’s get started.
I use a very simple software solution in order to unblock Rhapsody from outside the US. It is called a VPN. A VPN will allow you to mask the location of your computer. When you have a VPN enabled and select a US based address, you magically gain access to lots of popular (but blocked) websites. If this sounds like something you interested in (and you should be!) then continue reading our easy to follow 3 step guide.
First and Foremost
So go ahead and get signed up now, so you’ll be all ready for the second step to unblocking Rhapsody from Canada.
After Signing Up
You’ll now have full access to HMA’s download page. There download page is where you get their powerful Pro VPN Software. You will just need to follow HMA’s simple download instructions in order to get the software onto your computer.
Once the software is finished downloading, you will be able to launch it. Go ahead and do that now, and it will ask you for your personal Username and Password (you should have these through the registration process).
Pro Tip 2: I suggest you make one quick Pro VPN dashboard change. In the “Quick VPN Country Change” option, go ahead and set it to “Random 10 Closest Servers Based Upon Geographic Location”. This just helps to ensure both great speeds and great reliability each time you use HMA’s Pro VPN.
Get Yourself a Prepaid Credit Card & Register It With A USA-Based Address
Now you’re going to need to a way to pay for a Rhapsody gift card online. Since their credit card processing page only accepts USA-based credits cards you’re going to need to pick up a Vanilla MasterCard from the nearest 7-11, Shoppers Drug Mart, etc. They sell these a ton of places and they look like this:
When you get your Vanilla MasterCard you’re going to want to register it with a US zip code. Do do this you will need to visit www.vanillamastercard.com and click on the “US English Gift Card” option as shown below:
Once you have logged into your Vanilla MasterCard account you will then need to click on the “Register Your Card” tab on the left:
Here is where you are going to use a US zip code. You can go to www.usps.com/zip4 to find a zip code in a specific city. You can also go to www.realtor.com and look up an address in that same zip code. For the Vanilla MasterCard you only need the zip code.
Later, when you’re signing up for your Rhapsody account you will need a full street address and the easiest way to get one of those is realtor.com. Here is what the screen will look like when you’re going to register the US zip code to your prepaid credit card:
Now your card is registered to the US zip code you picked and you will now be able to purchase a Rhapsody gift card to set up your account.
Time To Sign Up For Rhapsody
Now that you’re virtually residing in the USA and you have a USA-based prepaid credit card you’re now able to head over to Rhapsody’s website and sign up for an account.
Now, don’t be too eager to click on the big orange “Try Rhapsody” button. Instead you’re going to want to hover over the “subscriptions” link on the bottom left of the page. Then click on “Gift” as seen in the image below.
This will take you to a page where you get to pick how many months of Rhapsody you want to prepay for. Go ahead and choose between 1, 3, 6 or 12 months of Rhapsody.
Next you’re going to have to enter an email address and password:
Then you will be taken to a payment page where you will now enter the prepaid credit card number you have just registered to a US zip code. You will need a full street address which you can find at www.realtor.com. Make sure the zip code match the zip code you used to register your prepaid credit card.
Go ahead and enter your information and click continue.
Do not be alarmed if it rejects your payment 3, 4, 5 or more times. Just keep trying to process the payment and, in my experience, it will eventually process. This can be frustrating but remember you’re about to access 16 million pus songs without any ads!
After the payment has processed you will be taken to a page where you can email or print your gift card. I recommend you choose to print it but it’s totally up to you.
Your gift card code will open up and you’ll want to copy it so you can paste it when you go to redeem it. Here is what this page will look like:
Now that you have a gift card code you’re going to want to redeem it so you can start to listen to to Rhapsody Canada! Navigate back to Rhapsody’s home page and then hover over the “subscriptions” tab on the bottom left of the page again. Then you’re going to want to click the “redeem gift” option as shown below:
This will take you this page where you will enter an email address, password and your gift card code:
The next thing you’ll see is going to be something not too many Canadians see (unless you this with them) and, trust me, it’s a glorious site to see! It’s the account confirmation page:
Now the best step of all…Rhapsody Canada Time!
With over 16 millions songs (with no adds) you’ll be stream or download your favorites until your heart’s content. Basically, if you think about it… with 16 millions songs, or roughly 93 years of continuations playing music if the average song is 3 minutes, your options are virtually endless.
For example, I was super keen to check out this band I just heard when I was having a massage this afternoon (don’t hate me). I searched for “Middle Brother” and sure enough there they were on Rhapsody for me to listen to:
Another really cool feature that I like about Rhapsody is that you can add songs to the “mixer”. By doing so you can set up a playlist on the fly filled with the songs you want to hear.
You can also tell Rhapsody to play the entire album and it will add the entire album to the mixer as well.
ONE LAST THING
It would be really awesome if you took just a minutes to this with all your music loving friends…because this awesome trick shouldn’t be kept to ones self!
