I just received this in my mail box from Yahoo..
Dear Yahoo! Music Unlimited Subscriber:
We want to let you know about an upcoming change to the Yahoo! Music Unlimited service regarding the transfer of subscription music to compatible portable music players. If you do not transfer subscription music to a portable device or do not plan to do so in the near future, this change does not affect you.
Currently, the Yahoo! Music Engine software lets you transfer two types of music to compatible portable music players: (1) subscription music, which is available to you for as long as you remain an active Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscriber, and (2) music you’ve purchased, including both downloaded music you’ve bought from Yahoo! and music you’ve ripped from CDs you own.
On November 1, 2005, the cost of transferring and playing subscription music on a portable digital music player will increase from $4.99 to $9.99 per month for an annual subscription ($119.88 billed annually) and from $6.99 to $11.99 per month for a monthly subscription. Despite this increase, Yahoo! Music Unlimited will
continue to offer the lowest price anywhere for transferring subscription music
to a portable player.
If you transfer Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscription music to a portable music player, or you plan to do so in the future, you may upgrade to an annual subscription by October 31, 2005 and lock in the current low price of $59.88 for one more year.
If you do not (and have not) transferred subscription music to a portable device, your subscription will continue to renew at the current monthly rate of $6.99 for the base package of Yahoo! Music Unlimited. All features will remain the same except for subscription music portability.

If you have further questions, you may contact Customer Care.
We are committed to offering our customers the most competitive pricing possible for digital music and we hope you continue to enjoy your experience with Yahoo! Music Unlimited.
