Rhapsody Hit 2M Paying Subscribers – unRadio Leads the Way

Posted by at 12:54 pm on July 29, 2014

Rhapsody said Today its partnership with T-Mobile US Inc. has helped boost its number of paying subscribers to more than 2 million, up from 1.7 million in April.

Last month, Rhapsody teamed up with the nation’s fourth-largest carrier on a new service called unRadio. It allows users to stream randomly generated songs along a genre, artist or song name without ads. It also lets them save 25 favorite songs to their device and lets them skip an unlimited number of tracks.

T-Mobile’s highest-tier customers got unRadio for free while other subscribers got $1 off the $5 per month service.

Rhapsody also said Tuesday it is expanding the service to Europe through its Napster division in a tie-up with France’s second-largest carrier, SFR. There, the service will cost 3.95 euros per month and be called Napster Decouverte.

Seattle-based Rhapsody’s chief product officer, Paul Springer, said the gap between established players like Rhapsody and Spotify and other upstarts is growing.
