Sprint and RealNetworks have decided to offer streaming music from Rhapsody online to the Sprint PCS Multimedia Vision Service customers. Rhapsody mobile will include streaming podcasts, “Beats N Breaks” and music news and videos.
“Rhapsody Radio includes “Urban Hitz Radio,” “Alternative Radio,” “Country,” “70s Station” and “Pop Hits,” as well as “Beats N Breaks,” which features the beats from many of today’s most popular songs and allows subscribers to “freestyle” rap to the instrumental tracks. Customers can also enjoy streaming podcasts from KCRW – Santa Monica 89.9 FM (KCRW.com), National Public Radio’s Southern California flagship station, including “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” which showcases live recordings of in-studio performances by independent and unsigned artists and the popular “Le Show” with satirist Harry Shearer. Customers will also receive music news and reviews and music videos from IMNTV, part of the Global Music International Company and leading international aggregator of R&B, Hip Hop, International, Rock and Pop videos.”
Rhapsody Radio can be purchased simply by typing in channel 39 in the Sprint Media Player or by going to the Music & Radio folder and selecting the new channel. The service is available to all Sprint devices, anytime of the day, and will set you $6.95 per month for unlimited access.
