If you’re in the US and willing to cough up $US10 a month, you’ll find yourself with eight million songs at your disposal on Slacker’s new Premium Radio service, which we previewed the other month.
It joins the entirely free Slacker Basic Radio, which doesn’t let you choose songs on-demand, and Slacker Radio Plus, which costs $US4 a month and strips all the ads from your streaming. The latter will also let you skip as many songs as you wish, which you can’t argue is a good deal.
But back to the new Premium Radio service. It’ll let you search for and play specific songs from Slacker’s eight-million catalogue, as well as create playlists and even stream playlists, albums and stations offline using the new iPad app, as well as on the iPhone/iPod touch, Android and BlackBerry apps. And yep, there aren’t any ads on the $US10 service either. [Slacker via UberGizmo]
