Social music coming to Telus
Telus has partnered with Rdio one of the hottest startups in the cloud-based music service space. The deal will enable Telus customers to subscribe to Rdio via their Telus account. Telus calls it the ‘Direct, one-click billing’ approach where customers can create a profile, download the Rdio app, and subscribe. You can then pay your Rdio subscription fee on your monthly TELUS bill.
For a monthly fee of $10 you can play any of the 9 million songs available on the Rdio system as often as you want completely ad free. Tight integration with Facebook and Twitter make it simple to share favourite songs, albums and playlists with friends.
Rdio syncs seamlessly across all of the user’s screens: PC and Mac computers,
tablets, and smartphones. That means you pick up exactly where you left off,
as you switch devices. You can also sync music to your mobile devices, so you can listen offline when there is no mobile signal or Internet connection.
Telus plans to launch Rdio shortly, in the meantime Rdio is offering a 7 day free trial on its web site. Apps are available for iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry..links are here
