Always and everywhere is a long way off.
A recent survey found numerous wi-fi and mobile black spots in the UK.
And that's a wealthy, highly developed, small land mass country.

Possibly for a fee, you could buy a longer authorization.
From a technological standpoint, I don't see how this could even work. You'd either need to invent a new format saddled with DRM and then somehow have every single type of music player adopt it (in order to meet the "re-authorize the content" part). Or you'd have a media format that could play on existing music players but then without the DRM defeating the whole re-authorization part. Which is basically what you these days with downloadable MP3s.

So yeah, this is a non-starter.
