Sign me up for a free last.fm.:)

Submitted by Anon on September 21, 2010 - 11:25am

This is BS. I live in Canada but pay for a subscription but it won't work on my ATV. This is a joke.. If i have a subscription that allows me to stream in Canada it should work here too.

Submitted by Anon on September 21, 2010 - 11:27am

Availability in Canada?

Submitted by Anon on September 21, 2010 - 11:34am

Sounds like a winner!

Now don't I feel like an idiot... I have been on twitter since it came out and always wondered what "RT" was. Thanks for the education my friend!

Submitted by Anon on September 21, 2010 - 1:06pm

 Me too
 
No last.fm in the menu bar ?!?
 
In UK also

Submitted by james on September 21, 2010 - 1:18pm

Hmmm....was the AppleTV restarted when prompted after installing the 4.2 version of 'Maintenance' through the Manage Plugins menu?

Submitted by james on September 21, 2010 - 1:18pm

Sorry...we're hoping to roll the same features out to other countries soon.  No definite date yet unfortunately.

Submitted by james on September 21, 2010 - 1:19pm

Unfortuantely it's out of our hands at this point.  We're hoping to add other countries soon.

Submitted by Anon on September 21, 2010 - 2:44pm

 I've restarted a couple of times,
Still no last.fm

If Last.fm Does not show up put your ATV in Standby mode and pull the plug wait a few seconds and plug it back in. A Hard reset will work. And LAST.FM will be there.

Submitted by Anon on September 21, 2010 - 5:52pm

I installed Last,FM app today without any problems, however it fails to work when I lunch any of the apps. Popular Music ETC. I am getting a failure notice about ID and Password not correct. I can logon the web based version on my PC and it works fine, any thoughts?

Submitted by Anon on September 21, 2010 - 6:17pm

Would love a subscription!

Submitted by urblessed on September 21, 2010 - 7:31pm

I am getting a failure notice about ID and Password not correct message, the same problem as Art-Man. Does anyone have a suggestion?

I am getting a failure notice about ID and Password not correct message, the same problem as Art-Man.

For all the disappointed people who get a country warning: The official Last.fm client works on ATV Flash, regardless where you are in the world. Just move a copy into the applications folder and you're up and running. I use it with Remote HD, but could also work with other remotes.

Was hoping that at least iTunes scrobbling would be enabled. It's not. Shame..

Submitted by Anon on September 22, 2010 - 6:17am

ID & password failure dialog here as well. Even tried creating a new account using obscure names and received dialog saying username already taken. Thought this would be pretty cool to use in my studio, but I don't have the time to try any additional troubleshooting. What a shame.

Submitted by Anon on September 22, 2010 - 7:41am

I can see the last.fm menu fine and log in but when I try to do anything it says it's not supported in my country (Canada). Im pretty sure there's no way around this???

Submitted by james on September 22, 2010 - 9:52am

The username/password error is related to your Last.fm subscription...not your username/password (message will be fixed shortly).  Currently Last.fm for AppleTV streams ad-free radio for which Last.fm requires a paid subscription.  Sorry for the confusion.

Submitted by Anon on September 22, 2010 - 12:35pm

Greta news! Thought that I had scrapped my apple tv

Submitted by instantjesus on September 22, 2010 - 2:14pm

no solution actually, but the alternative mentioned above works fine for me.

Submitted by kyawminthein on September 22, 2010 - 8:20pm

it's error when tag a radio station. any update to fix this?

Submitted by jonallegre on September 22, 2010 - 9:43pm

I'm running aTVFlash 4.2, and the last.fm plugin says "enabled", but the last.fm option is not appearing on the menu bar, anywhere. Where is it supposed to be? Between "Music" & "Podcasts", right? I've restarted the Apple TV, disabled & re-enabled the last.fm plugin, but none of that made the last.fm menu appear. Is there some other plugin or extra that is required to be enabled to get this to work?

Submitted by jonallegre on September 22, 2010 - 9:48pm

 Unfortunately, this didn't work for me Frown

Submitted by james on September 23, 2010 - 8:34am

We're looking into it.  Sorry for the trouble.

Submitted by james on September 23, 2010 - 8:35am

Sorry - submit a support ticket by clicking the 'Support' link in the header and we'll get you back on track.

Submitted by Anon on September 26, 2010 - 5:30am

 aTV Flash -> great, last.fm -> great, both together -> great^2 but not in Germany
Sorry I don't quite understand instantjesus' workaround.
Are you talking about to copy the last.fm client using e.g. Cyberduck to the application folder on AppleTV?
I did it, ATV started up to the GUI and froze.
What did I wrong or misunderstood?
Despite the fact that ATV froze, how can I start the last.fm client in the application folder (Remote HD is available)?
 
Support is highly appreciated.

Submitted by Anon on September 30, 2010 - 6:56pm

Wow. I like this better than pandora running on Boxee. Thanks Firecore!

Submitted by Anon on October 2, 2010 - 8:32pm

I take it back.  Last.fm appletv app just told me my trial was over and wants $3 month to continue using it.  Bah!  I'm going back to pandora running on Boxee.

Hi James,

I have aTV flash and live in New Zealand, for some reason last.fm says it's not available in my country for that apple tv but your post says: Update: Last.fm radio is now also available in: Australia, Canada, Germany, and New Zealand.
Can you please let me know what I might be doing wrong? I can sign in but keep getting the 'not available in your country' message.

Thanks

Submitted by james on November 3, 2010 - 9:36am

You'll want to ensure you're running the latest version of Last.fm (1.0.4) - you can update on the AppleTV via Maintenance --> Manage Plugins.

I've updated the post to reflect the latest version is required. Smile

Submitted by Anon on November 3, 2010 - 10:51pm

Hi James, thanks for your prompt reply. I go to manage plugins and it tells me that lastfm is installed and up to date. However The version installed is 1.0.3 - is there a way to fix this?
Thanks Smile

Submitted by james on November 6, 2010 - 9:53am

Hmm - you may try removing and reinstalling Last.fm. To remove it simply highlight Last.fm in the Manage Plugins menu, press the right arrow (>>) and follow the prompts.

Submitted by Anon on November 7, 2010 - 1:27pm

Tried that Frown Ive tried everything but it still keeps saying 1.0.3 is the latest. Any more ideas?
Thanks

What can I do ... on my PC everythings OK with Last.FM ...so country Belgium shouldn't be the problem

Submitted by gjorans on October 29, 2011 - 12:25pm

I bought the whole package because of last.fm and now the last.fm-bastards tells me I cant use it in my country. I am starting to wonder why on earth I am paying last.fm money. They surely don't want them.
