I Wonder If last.fm Heard That?

The last.fm blog:

On February 15, the radio service built into Last.fm mobile apps and on home entertainment devices will become an ad-free, subscriber-only feature.

Last.fm Radio will remain free on the Last.fm website in the US, UK and Germany and for the US and UK users of Xbox Live and Windows Mobile 7 phones. We’ll also continue to offer radio for free via the Last.fm desktop app.

That sound you heard was the remaining last.fm users deleting the app from their phones and installing Pandora instead.

  1. Yeah, unless you’re outsisde the US, where we:
    1) have had to pay for about 1 or 2 years
    2) get this when we go to Pandora’s site:

    We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.

    I wish http://libre.fm/ was a viable full-time last.fm replacement…
