Duh. That’s what streaming is. Playing it while it downloads. Not waiting til it’s finished. If you don’t want to keep the downloaded copy then you can delete it. But if you aren’t given the option to keep it, then you have no choice but to redownload every time you stream.

I wouldn’t want any part of that business model, would you?

I doubt that many people realize that streaming eats up your data allotment, without you even being aware of what’s happening. It is MUCH better to download the song ONCE, then listen to it.
