For the music, movie or video-game aficionado on your gift list, a subscription plan may be the perfect gift this holiday season.
Companies such as eMusic offer music, radio, and audio books, while sites such as Rhapsody and Pandora offer accounts for monthly or annual fees. Movie and TV subscription services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus offer unlimited streaming of shows. For video-game lovers, subscription services such as Gamefly.com offer game rentals that deliver straight to their homes. These subscription services offer greater versatility for your loved one than giving an individual movie, album, or game alone and don't require you to know the latest in cool for video games or movies.
