SoundCloud Unveils Subscription Service
Update: The new SoundCloud features short previews for some major releases and blocking based on country location.
SoundCloud shared details about its new subscription service this week. SoundCloud Go will be available in the U.S. for $9.99 a month ($12.99 for iOS users). The company suggests that signing up will give listeners access to an “expanded catalog,” presumably as a result of licensing agreements that SoundCloud reached recently with major labels—UMG in January, and Sony earlier this month. The service boasts a library of 125 million tracks. Subscribers will be able to listen without having to put up with ads, and they’ll also be able to listen offline.
