    Beginning this year a free download of your Phish show as been downgraded to just a free stream. They do offer a discounted price if you want the download. Since it was free I should not complain, but I would be lying if I did not express my disappointment. One cool thing is you just have to scan the ticket, but that cuts two ways. Gone our the days of finding stubs on the ground and giving the codes to your friends that could not make the show. But that is rendered meaningless without the free download anyway. I guess it's still something, but I used to rationalize the high price of the ticket with the free download. Bottom line will this stop me from going to Phish shows? Hell no, that choice is reserved for when they play the same venue for two straight weeks.

Here is Phish's official explanation! 

2017 Phish ticket codes are redeemable to unlock a free stream of the show in the My Stash on your LivePhish mobile app – available for free from iTunes and Google. A subscription is not required to stream your redeemed or purchased shows. 

The app can now scan your ticket barcode right from your phone to unlock the show in your Stash. You can start listening as soon as the show is posted which is usually before you are even out of the venue. 

If you want to UPGRADE your code to Lossless or HD Downloads or CDs for a discounted price you must redeem your code on the website. Redeeming it on the website will still unlock the show in your Stash on the LivePhish app.

Free MP3 downloads are still available for any pre-2017 ticket codes. You can also scan them to redeem directly from your app.
