Any takers? I am trying to find it so I can block it so that my users don't abuse the limited bandwidth that we have.

If you mean the music service, then it would be hard to block just a port.
In fact they use a whole range of ports, among them 80 & 443, the same as all other websites using http & https. Totally blocking them would also block access to the rest of the www.
These are all the ports they use:
- TCP 80, 554, 4040, 7070, 8080, 443 (Secure Socket Layer for sign in), 1755 (MMS Windows Media requests)
- UDP 6970-32,000, 1755 (MMS Windows Media resend requests)
- HTTP 80 (AutoUpdate, Messaging Service, and HTTP Cloaking)

The simplest would be to block access to their url's:
*.rbn.com
*.llnwd.net
*.real.com
*.rhapsody.com
*.listen.com
*.doubleclick.net

This would block the Best Buy digital music store that is powered by rhapsody? Very thorough response thank you.

Also I am looking to block ITunes. I found that it works on 3689 TCP and 5353 UDP. Would that block the ITunes service?

This should indeed block any 'powered by', but just to be sure you could add the url of Best Buy.
For itunes I basically answered it here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Misc/Q_22039602.html
