T-Mobile Unveils Stream-As-Much-As-You-Want Music Service
A T-Mobile customer poll on Facebook is underway for customers to vote for which other services they think should be included. Google Play, Beats Music and Rdio are also being considered.
Although smaller services like Rhapsody are often overlooked by the public eye, mainly due to large companies like Spotify, Beats Music, iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, they have focused on growing overseas, and through mobile carriers and telecom partnerships like this new one with T-Mobile.
Paul Springer, Chief Product Officer of Rhapsody said, “We set out to create the world’s best Internet radio service, and with UnRadio, we’ve succeeded.”
UnRadio Rhapsody customers on the T-Mobile network will be billed directly as part of their existing contract, but the service will be available to any other user. The price to everyone else is $5 a month.
The service let’s users stream as much music as they want withOut being interrupted by ads. They will be able to mark favourite songs and save songs. They will also be able to download songs for offline listening. Rhapsody currently has 32 million songs. There is also a radio option ghat allows users to choose local radio stations.
UnRadio has one really awesome feature; TrackMatch. TrackMatch allows users to user Rhapsody to identify songs player at a bar or on a TV, etc, and create a station around that song. You can also save the song. It’s basically Shazam, but better.
There is yet to be a release date for this service for T-Mobile customers in the UK however.
