" I guess my real gripe is with the statement that 90% of the total Hi-Rez catalog is accessible. That means, to me, for streaming. That is what their selling, a streaming service not a download sales catalog. "
That is your personal interpretation of what they are selling. This has led to your expectation but does not reflect their actual offer. The offer for Sublime + reads (copied and pasted from the UK home page):
" The best music subscription in the world: unlimited Hi-Res streaming, Hi-Res downloads at a special price".
Sublime+ and Sublime plain vanilla are not, and never have been, streaming only services. Incidentally newcomer Primephonic has a similar pitch.
BTW those special prices really are with albums costing, say, 12-14 gbp at other download sites being available from Qobuz to Sublime members at 8-9 gbp. Of course as the service is only currently available in the EU those prices include VAT at circa 20%.
