Is there a way to access the Rhapsody trial for UK squeezebox owners?
When I try, I get a 'Rhapsody isn't available in your country' message.

Not an easy one, Rhapsody is a US only service due to licensing restrictions (see also Pandora [easier to get around] and emusic [increasingly more stuff is unavailable to US residents]).

AFAIK, If you can find someone with a US registered credit card to subscribe for you, and you run through a US proxy server, it is possible.

P.S. Rhapsody isn't ever likely to be available even to US subscribers on Squeezenetwork which is the forum you're posting in - not sure if that was part of the Q.

I was trying to register for the free trial.
Yes, I was hoping someone might know of a workaround ( a la Pandora and the US zipcode trick).

Wrong forum, sorry!
