Music streaming service Napster, better known as Rhapsody in the US market, is now officially live in Canada.
The premium subscription music service, which offers customers access to more than 35 million songs for streaming and offline playback, lands in Canada just over a year after Spotify launched in the territory.
Napster is priced at C$9.99 per month, but for a limited time, Canadians will be able to get three months of Napster for only C $1.
Available in both of Canada’s official languages, Napster is on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Web, Sonos, Chromecast, and supported by several auto manufacturers.
“Napster is bringing a better way to play music to Canada,” said Ethan Rudin, chief financial officer, Napster.
“With a deep catalogue of local artists, hand-curated playlists, and the first music experience for kids, Napster is customized specifically for Canadian music fans.
It was important to us that we enter Canada with a personalized music experience that has a complete catalogue of local, national and international artists.”
Napster (and Rhapsody) recently announced that it had 3m paying subscribers around the world.Music Business Worldwide
