Qello seeks to corner the market on streaming concerts and music documentaries. Do they have enough diverse material in their coffers to satisfy our consumptive hunger for content?

The supermarket was quite the innovation when it emerged near the outset of the previous century by offering many a consumer’s favorite products in one place for relatively easy one-stop shopping. Some of our modern-day streaming services resemble that business model by purporting to present a wide variety of viewing and listening options. Qello Concerts by Stingray is but one of those companies that prefer to go big in their desire to be the topper most digital super marketplace for streaming concert and music documentary content.

In fact, Qello (for short) claims to house “the world’s largest collection of full-length concerts and music documentaries streamed on-demand to just about any digital device.” While I couldn’t exactly count every entry they have, I can confirm they house one of the biggest libraries I’ve seen under anyone's digital-access umbrella to date.

Like many services, Qello offers a seven-day free trial before asking you to choose to pay $11.99 a month, or $99.99 a year. As of press time, a sweet holiday-related gift package rate of $69.99 a year had been extended through December’s end, but I can’t say if that special rate will remain in effect as we get deeper into 2021, so first check Qello’s Buy Gift menu before deciding which option best suits your needs.

Home electronics – Buy Once, Cry Once

PART 2. In my previous column (Buy Once, Cry Once), I considered areas in your A/V budget where you should consider splurging when building a system. The categories I listed—projection screens, amplifiers, speakers—are ones that can provide years of enjoyment, but don’t see regular or major upgrades. I also covered categories like subwoofers that have a real impact on a system’s overall performance, and ones like pre-wiring that can strongly affect a system’s future serviceability.
