This makes a lot of sense and certainly allows existing subscribers greater access (though additional cost) to their subscription. I am not personally sold on whether people will pay a monthly fee yet for radio online. I guess I’ll reserve judgement until it launches and we can see how it actually works. Can you play in your media player of choice? Is it PC only etc… New Dell purchasers will receive a 30 day free subscription as part of the launch – guess Dell = Music these days on the PC side of the world.
XM Radio Online, will launch sometime in early October and operate commercial-free, just as its satellite programming does. XM will charge $7.99 per month for unlimited listening and offer a discount rate of $3.99 to subscribers of its existing radio services. [News.com]
