Rhapsody cuts subscription rates

By | Published on Wednesday 7 April 2010

US-based digital music service Rhapsody has cut its monthly subscription rate from fifteen dollars to ten dollars following the recent creation of a stand-alone Rhapsody company, separate from its owners RealNetworks and Viacom.

Although the subscription-service concept has enjoyed more success in the US digital music market than over here, and Rhapsody has been one of the bigger operators in that space, the subscriptions market is becoming increasingly competitive following the launch of a number of pay-to-use streaming services, many with mobile variations.
