Rhapsody International, the parent company of music services Rhapsody and Napster, has announced a new Internet radio service, Rhapsody unRadio.
According to the company, it reimagines what Internet radio can be, by removing the limitations that interrupt music fans’ listening experience and delivering on a simple promise: great music that doesn’t stop.
Rhapsody unRadio’s features include:
Radio without limits: unRadio gives customers one place where they can listen to any kind of radio, and enjoy their music without interruptions or limitations. Listeners can skip an unlimited number of songs. And, there are no annoying ads.
Save the songs you love: When people hear a song they love on unRadio, they can mark it as a favorite and automatically save it for later listening. People can stream these songs on-demand or download them to enjoy anywhere – even without a connection.
Create your own stations: Customers can listen to hundreds of professionally programmed stations, or create their own stations based on the songs or artists they love.
Live streaming radio from your hometown or around the world: unRadio offers live streaming radio from thousands of terrestrial stations in the U.S., including KCRW in Los Angeles, KEXP in Seattle, and Chicago’s WXRT, among others, and from thousands of stations around the world.
More music: unRadio features a more diverse range of artists and songs than any other Internet radio service, claims the company. unRadio is powered by the same ever-expanding global catalog of more than 32 million songs available through Rhapsody.
ID songs anywhere, with TrackMatch: Rhapsody unRadio includes a new feature, TrackMatch, that customers can use to identify songs they hear while out at a bar, ballgame, party or even on TV, and create stations around these songs or save them as favorites for later listening.
