SoundCloud Launches Subscription Music Service ➝

Ingrid Lunden, writing for TechCrunch:

SoundCloud Go, a new subscription tier launching first in the U.S., will give users access to some 125 million tracks including premium licensed content on demand, starting first in the U.S. at $9.99 per month (or $12.99 on the iOS app after Apple’s transaction fee). On top of the existing SoundCloud UGC trove, users get tens of millions of on-demand premium tracks, along with offline listening, and no ads.

That increased price for in-app purchase subscribers is a little disappointing, but I think the service will do well.
