Default iHeartRadio not on new tablets

Just got word last night that iHeartRadio is not accessible on the new tablet format.

So if you got a subscription for your loved one, might as well cancel it

This new system is a step backward, not forward. We chatted every day and that is no longer possible. Maybe if they get individual tablets it will get better, but they have lost their music and ability to have conversations in a timely manner.

Music is so important for more reasons than I can count.

If every inmate in every facility in Oregon would sing Don Mclean's
(The Day the Music Died) at exactly the same time, in harmony, do you think they'd get their music back?


I'd go absolutely insane without music

The old mp3 players will still be able to play music, but there is no way to transfer that music onto any new device, and if the mp3 player dies - *poof*, there goes the music.

My friend has over $1000 in music on his mp3 player. He's pretty angry that after spending the money for the player, then for the music, once his mp3 player dies, that's it for his collection

We'd set up an iHeartRadio account for him, but now that that's not an option for him...
