Thank you for this very informative review of the changes you are making in the HOS.com website. I am one of your subscribers to the full service, and I stream the music to my Windows 10 iOS on my PC. I also spend time daily on your website "shopping" for HOS programs to listen to that I haven't heard (many of them). I'm not a programmer, but I'm pretty "computer savvy", so I'm happy you are upgrading HOS.com. I don't use iTunes (not an Apple user). Looking forward to the new and wonderful changes in my favorite music website (and the only one I am willing to pay for to enjoy the music).

Congrats on the ever-beautiful programming at HOS. Any idea when we could expect the Version 4 release? (Out of curiosity)

Thanks for asking, Carl. If everything goes according to schedule, we will be doing beta-testing over the summer. Depending on what comes out of that, we expect to release Version 4 in fall 2017.

Such great news! Looking forward to the update.

Congratulations - that is a huge ton of work and I am so glad the phase-out of flash (and constant updates for new OS) hasn't taken the wind out of the sails and you're able to keep it up for us. I don't know how much your audience knows what huge challenges and undertakings these things are, but I would be so lost without HOS. I love knowing you are here.

Thanks, Trixie. The project is on schedule and we are really looking forward to rolling it out when it's done!

I've been trying for a week to hear you, but nothing happens after the home page. I see here that you are undergoing exciting changes. Are we able to play old programs now? Please let me know when things are up and running - I can't live for long without you!

As we approach the one-year anniversary of this post, I hope things have not stalled. The current web site mostly behaves itself on my work desktop (Linux/Firefox with FlashBlock).

I would love to completely kick Flash to the curb, but can't do that as long as hos.com needs it.

Bob, thanks for your comment. Clearly this project is taking longer than we would have liked, but the work is proceeding and we are making steady progress. We are currently testing alpha level builds of the new website and mobile apps. We had one technical setback with our API performance which means some additional delay, but if all goes well we expect to go into beta testing In a few months. Rest assured though, the Flash player will be history, replaced with an up to date HTML5 player on all platforms!

What matters is your voice, the programs and the music. Thank you for being here. The technology still works AND it is promising that you're making the transition away from Flash.

Thank you for your generous understanding, Trixie.
