  • JDMoser07 David Moser (@JDMoser07) reported

    @tylerwittman @myleswerntz @mattleeanderson You can buy the shows on iTunes (if they're non-Netflix-only shows) or another streaming service like Amazon and just watch them there. Or of course DVD/Blu-ray if you're still old school.

  • TaylorHerbertt taylor 🥝 (@TaylorHerbertt) reported

    @WhatUpBG but you’re not buying the music, with itunes you’re buying the song, or the album. paying for a service that is ALREADY ON YOUR PHONE is a scam

  • _lazulila (′°︿°)? (@_lazulila) reported

    @cherrybombkeith yeah, that's fair. to some extent you can't control certain things but we just do the best we can. my biggest issue is music tbh. i don't want to support either amazon or apple/itunes but guess where most artists host their music now x__x

  • LinkedInHelp LinkedIn Help (@LinkedInHelp) reported

    @lubelluledotcom Hi- Unfortunately, you will need to contact Apple for a refund. Due to Apple's Privacy Terms LinkedIn is unable to issue iTunes refunds. I apologize for the additional steps. - LJ

  • johnvoorhees John Voorhees (@johnvoorhees) reported

    @tedsvo @macstoriesnet Also, the indoor issues I had were where I was connecting from my Mac where I’ve found AirPlaying from iTunes to be less reliable than from iOS on all devices. But as I said in the review, Zipps are more fiddly than a HomePod.

  • momoalyssa24 Morgan Stinson (@momoalyssa24) reported

    @owensc30 If you need my iTunes login I got you. I have it downloaded 😂😂😂

  • Beernomicon Beernomicon Podcast (@Beernomicon) reported

    @kellfired Just checked and im having the same problem. Will contact iTunes and see what they say. Will get back to ya if I found anything out.

  • thocpodcast The History of China Podcast (@thocpodcast) reported

    @historyengland @BritishPodcast No, it looks like you're right. Hard-limit seems to be 300 Episodes. @BritishPodcast , it looks like on iTunes your feed "begins" at episode 33 now... 😯 I still have a ways to go before I'll have to deal with this problem... but still... good to know

  • Maynardgcrabbs Tony Shaw 📚 (@Maynardgcrabbs) reported from Ballarat North, State of Victoria

    @natashamitchell On ITunes at the moment but will be available on Fox apparently and probably on SBS down the track

  • nurelmihuda elmi (@nurelmihuda) reported

    @ieradinda I is scared if they take down all of his songs from iTunes and Youtube and like I can’t listen to them anymore 😭

  • crab_omelettes カニタマ (Crablettes) (@crab_omelettes) reported

    Remembering the time my little brother deadass gave someone his itunes login because someone said they'd give him free roblox money

  • BLAD3OVY BLAD3OVY (@BLAD3OVY) reported

    @FCE365 The problem is ...if I downgrade I won’t be able to restore iTunes backup 😔 ... and need it

  • Fantasy_Plonker The Fantasy Plonker Podcast (@Fantasy_Plonker) reported

    Apparently there’s some server issues that won’t be resolved for up to 24 hours causing problems with the iTunes & Spotify link. However, the pod is still all good on soundcloud if you wanna check it out. Probably my funniest episode to date 😂 #FPL #FPLCommmunity #Podcast

  • brandneweyez Chris McClure (@brandneweyez) reported

    Hey @Apple, PLEASE fix TV show bundles on @iTunes store. Bundle the individual seasons together like you do with movies instead of making them a separate entitity. It’s not only visually unappealing (one giant season is messy and confusing) but it creates issues with Up Next.

  • AFabMannequin A Fab Mannequin (@AFabMannequin) reported

    What killed music piracy as a major issue was the rise of iTunes and other online music stores. Because, while its more expensive, it's an easier and more reliable way to get music online than hunting through the Pirate Bay or other torrent service hoping not to get a virus.

    Downgrading from iOS 13 to 12.3 was a headache on my mac kept getting iTunes error 26, had to use my windows machine and 3utools

  • whiteoutgotu Testarossa (@whiteoutgotu) reported

    @ofbating @Mikeaveli2682 1) I believe there was a problem getting ‘NASIR’ on TiDal. Maybe Snoop is experiencing something similar. 2) I’m willing to bet he feels the same way about iTunes/Apple Music and Spotify. There really was no need for another streaming service like that. 3) Snoop is old.

  • MsDarcyFarrow 𝔇𝔞𝔯𝔠𝔶 𝔉𝔞𝔯𝔯𝔬𝔴🌈🍭 (@MsDarcyFarrow) reported

    @HollandTaylor @iTunes Yes I stopped purchasing from itunes a couple years ago; my ipod is broken long ago and it never synced on my computer. I'm not tech savvy either and I've never found anyone to sort it. I gave up. Occasionally I'll buy a cd for my car - the only real place I can listen to music.

  • _yellow__rose 🦋•Steph • BB OT5 👑 (@_yellow__rose) reported

    Excuse me. I’m gonna work on this more. The issue is I’ll look up the one CD I have ... then end up adding all of that artists music to my iTunes 🤣🤣 good thing I have unlimited

  • RabbeseKing dan castlevania (@RabbeseKing) reported

    @solomonster @WWE Unfortunately not working on Podbean or iTunes

  • heyitsjay121 Jill 🦈 (@heyitsjay121) reported

    @HollandTaylor Sometimes you need to download it before it plays. I’ve had this problem a few times with iTunes on my computer.

  • giftedavery carly 14 (@giftedavery) reported

    @phasesblake yeah it’s different from the beginning in the music video but like november 2017 the music on itunes changed but in the mv its the same. i remember thinking my earbuds were broken but it was just the song, i think it had to do with the fact that it was similar to another song

  • Lola1Jose Lola Jose (@Lola1Jose) reported

    @AppleSupport Hi hope u can help. My iPhone 8 has been having storage problems. I couldn’t update iOS/download photos even tho had 50gb free took to Apple Store where they downloaded to their computer iTunes and now phone has no photos and they can’t find them on their computer.

  • WolfieVibes Kelly McClure (@WolfieVibes) reported

    @HollandTaylor I have a feeling the volume on your iTunes is turned down. My laptop randomly does this sometimes.

  • NYC10021 NYC10021 (@NYC10021) reported

    @HollandTaylor 1) Make sure the volume control at the top of the iTunes window isn’t turned down 2) Check the computer’s volume isn’t turned down (choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Sound 3) If you have external speakers, check if they are plugged in the audio port.

  • UrsusRob Dr. Rob Partridge ALS ACS DD 🏳️‍🌈 🐾 (@UrsusRob) reported from Streetly, England

    @ScoobyDoofus (2) But, I don’t get an answer as before I can stop it my brain moves on to things connected with horses and goes down a weird rabbit hole. Horses - in fields - strawberry fields - Beatles - music - iTunes - apple - fruit - hungry. Almost everything in hungry.

  • LitheTheWolf Quickshot_Aura (@LitheTheWolf) reported

    @JTMusicTeam I can reassure you that the problem was dealt with. Sorry for the inconvenience, but after deleting the songs on both albums and buying them both, and download them again, it worked. The app I used was ITunes, but it’s now fully downloaded to my phone, so problem solved. Thanks!

  • Youssefwinnersi Im~ Enjoying~With~UO~JB~Ios~12.1.4 (@Youssefwinnersi) reported

    @Jaydenstowe download the firmware, from the site and make updates through itunes, if it is not open it will give you an error ... and then if the developers say so it means that they are open

  • piggydiva Terrilyn Fleming (@piggydiva) reported

    I just buy streaming service from AMazon so I can listen to whatever I want. I can never get iTunes to play and I’ve lost too many albums.

  • NintendoNumbers Super Expert Eric (@NintendoNumbers) reported

    Here is the Problem- I had an old "Nintendo by Numbers Podcast" that had a different host (Lybsin). That means different RSS. The old one is gone. Thing is, when I uploaded this NEW RSS to iTunes, it kept the same 'Mirror RSS'

  • Gypsophilala Gypsophila (@Gypsophilala) reported

    @Vnusinbluejeans Only issues I’ve had with it were CD songs I imported over disappeared, then when I change device, it re-adds all the shite from compilations which I’ve deleted. Other than that, anything I’ve paid for from iTunes remains on there.

  • bronxemz emma (@bronxemz) reported

    @Sannekie @BronnieMusic there is a problem...:( the distributor sent it on iTunes and not Spotify. they are going to fix it but it may takes a few days

    @SonosSupport I'm trying to use an apple time capsule as a NAS with my iTunes library. When I try to point my Sonos to it I get error message (1001) "Unable to add shared folder (name) to your music library." PLEASE HELP! Thanks!

  • peratkins61 Perry Atkins (@peratkins61) reported

    @SonosSupport @SonosSupport okay did everything you said and loaded iTunes library on Sonos through your controller and added to music library which I can see on my controller under- browse, music library. Will not play any of it: server not found error message.

  • SoundsOfBrianB Brian B (@SoundsOfBrianB) reported

    @MyMissKylie The catalogue is massive. Artists can take their music down, so songs can disappear (you don’t own the downloads like with the iTunes Store) but I find this rarely happens unless Spotify finds a coyright infringement (for example, an unlicensed cover song)

  • angelfuckoff Angel (@angelfuckoff) reported

    Do it. Do it. Do it. @taylorswift13 give us the original Tear Drops On My Guitar sound!! Not that pop edit bullshit iTunes is shoving down our throats.

  • lemedah lemedy (@lemedah) reported

    Years after everyone else I learn that you cannot apparently upload songs from itunes if you have the apple music streaming service enabled on your phone. I haven't been this cranky since they took away the normal headphone jack.

  • Tmanhuff Tyler Huff (@Tmanhuff) reported

    @LumaTouch MAJOR PROBLEM: When I tap on iTunes in Lumafusion, it never loads. It just sits there and spins and the only way to stop it is to completely uninstall it. Help ASAP or I need a full refund.
