How to get more streams on Haulix


One common complaint we receive from people accessing our promos is that certain releases come with a limited stream allotment. This number, which is set by the sender, restricts the listener to only hearing each track a certain number of times – typically 5 or less.

The reasons people set limits on streams are numerous. Some, for example, believe there is a lower likelihood of piracy if the material can only be accessed a finite amount of times. Others want to ensure an album is streamed strictly for professional purposes and not, for example, to entertain someone’s friends.

When you encounter a stream limit you should email the contact who sent you the promo directly and request additional streams. That person may or may not grant your request.

We (Haulix) cannot grant additional streams without permission from the sender.
