Family Subscription Plans
Would allow multiple users on a single credit card
One "master" user would be able to control the other "sub-accounts"
Each account would have their own libraries, playlists, etc.
[was: Add multiple stream options to subscription plans. Multiple users/streams peer account.]
Adding additional simultaneous feeds to accounts for additional fees so that multiple users can stream simultaneously from the same account.

This is absolutely needed. My wife spends all day randomly starting songs so that I have to click the "Play music here" button. She thinks she's hilarious, I think we need a family plan. TAKE MY MONEY MOG!!!
This would be awesome. I can let my wife use my account now, if I want, but I don't. We have different music tastes and I don't want to see her recommendations on my profile. I would definitely pay more to have one account, with multiple user profiles. This would also be great for when we both are in different locations and want to use MOG at the same time.
WE NEED TO HAVE A FAMILY SUBSCRIPTION PLAN QUICK!!! I'm on Rdio for now due to MOG not having a Family Subscription plan, but to me MOG is the best player for my needs. Please get us a Family Plan so that I can return to the MOG fold.....like on tomorrow please!!!

I'm new to MOG, but this would be a great addition.
Yes a family plan would cause me to switch from Rhapsody or Rdio to Mog.
As someone who has given the gift of MOG on several occasions, I LOVE this idea. I would give it more often if it were easier to do, but it isn't as easy as it can/should be.
Recently, there has been suspicious activity on several of my credit cards and they have had to change. As a result, I must get access to all the accounts I have gifted to update the payment info or give over my credit card info so people can update their accounts.
I'd really love this, don't see a reason why it shouldn't be explored. Pricing wise so long as it isn't full price for each additional I wouldn't really mind. Even then, the inability to just add another subscription on the same email is incredibly frustrating. I've got the subscription through your Telstra partnership so it is unmetered (main reason I swapped) which is amazing but my family can't use it! Please consider this model, I understand that the resistance is likely to come from the music labels, not MOG but speaking economically you're likely to capture more value if you price inadded or family increments as one tech innovator signs up the rest of their household for perceived value (discount on purchase).
Would really like this feature as well..

yes- I totally like this idea- I was able to stream on multiple devices before I upgraded to operating system iOS6 on my iphone- now I can't access MOG on sonos at home and my cell phone at the same time??? what happened? if you could have a family plan- I will stick with you otherwise this is ridiculous.
You could also have all the current plans but an extra one. Maybe an "ultimate" subscription where for $15 members could have three emails registered for use (including their own + two sub-members) and the option for extra email membership for $2 per email (or something along those lines)

My opinion is why not use apples idea where you can have up to a set amount of devices synced to the account and when you reach it, you're given the option to remove all devices before adding a new one. For example you can activate 5 devices with your iTunes account. When you hit 5 the next time you try to activate a new device iTunes asks if you wish to deactivate all current devices
YES! ... for, say, an additional $5 a month I'd love or my wife to be able to share the service with her own favourites, playlists etc
Please please please add this functionality. If Rdio has it, MOG should be able to get it going also!
This is very important to me, and in opinion, it's the one true competitive advantage that Rhapsody has over Mog. I have a lot of young music lovers in my house, and as they get older, they're getting mobile phone. I'm not about to switch back to Rhapsody from Mog (I actually like to be able to hear the music -- go figure), but I'm tempted to supplement my Mog subscription with one from Rhapsody for my children. I can't imagine Mog wants that.

Had to switch back to Rhapsody now that my wife got a smartphone. Have to be able to have two accounts accessing content, even if they're not simultaneous. I usually download my tracks anyway on WiFi for better audio, so she can use the streaming. In my case, not having a 3-device plan like Rhapsody was a dealbreaker. I prefer the MOG interface, so I'd be back if you implemented this.
Yes sub accounts would be a great idea, that way my customized recommendations and favorites don't get screwed up when my wife listens to pop music!
I'm ready to do $15 a month for three devices if that includes mobile devices, too. My wife and I listen at home on an LG Smart TV Upgrader or listen on PCs. We have different tastes in music, so being able to listen together using different devices and headphones would be nice. Paying to listen on separate devices isn't practical considering the economy.
Khena Kara commented
I agree. Rhapsody does this, allowing for 3 devices for $15/month. MOG has a better music selection, so I would switch in an instant if it allowed for that!
Edwin Pimentel commented
napster did it and that was what i love about it. My wife and I had an account, and both can use our own mobile device with our own favs/playlist/etc...and if you can do a yearly subscription even better...!!!!
Agreed with many of the suggestions:
1. Offer 2 (or possibly 3) user accounts under one plan ($15/month).
2. Offer to pay 1-full year at discounted rates (for single/multiple user accounts).
My wife and I would gladly pay additional $5/month for an additional user account, but $10 extra is not as easy to swallow.
