iHeartRadio Releases Beta Versions of New Streaming Services

iHeartMedia, the largest radio broadcasting company in the U.S., has pulled the curtain off a beta of two new services, iHeartRadio Plus and iHeartRadio All Access, the latter of which will use the streaming infrastructure of Napster (previously Rhapsody, the longest-running music streaming service).

The services will launch in full in January, 2017.The pricing ($4.99 — which we pretty much already knew) and functionality (offline listening, unlimited song skips, customized “stations”) of iHeartRadio Plus closely mirrors that of Pandora Plus, the mid-price subscription service launched by iHeartRadio’s primary digital competitor in early September. iHeartRadio Plus does arrive with one significant differentiator: live radio from the company’s 850 terrestrial stations, and the ability to replay songs aired and heard on those stations.
