Different Licensing on Mobile App vs Desktop Browser

Why do there appear to be different licensing restrictions in the mobile app vs using desktop browser? For a direct example of what I mean, in a desktop browser, I can listen to Pink Floyd's The Turning Away an unlimited amount of times, on repeat if I want. However, I discovered last night that when trying to select the same song in the mobile app that it's labelled as a "station-only" song, and cannot be individually played. Why is this and how does it make sense?

Hey there, @ForcedToSignUp. 👋

Nice to see you around the community space.

Looks like there are two different versions of that song (and the album). I do see that the Radio-Only version you're referring to as well. It looks like one version is the original release and the other may be a re-release. In the meantime, I will report this over to our curation team to investigate.

Any song marked as "Radio-Only" will be labeled as such across all devices.

One version you're able to listen to on-demand can be found here.

The Radio-Only version can be found here:

I hope this helps clarify. If you think something else is happening, feel free to share a screenshot of what you're seeing on both devices. I'm happy to take a look for you. 🎧

Ok, that makes sense. I've run across several different songs that appear to have multiple versions, I just didn't notice this one in particular. Thanks for the help!
