last.fm closes subscriber radio service

Last.fm is closing its subscription-based radio streaming service on April 28th, meaning subscriber radio will no longer work on any platform or device.

Personal stations will still be available using YouTube and the company will focus on its new player along with recommendations and tracking features instead.

Managing Director Simon Moran said: “Following the launch of the new Last.fm Player earlier this year and Last.fm’s partnership with Spotify for on-demand playback, we’ve revised the subscription service in order to focus on the new Last.fm Player and Last.fm’s over-arching mission – world-class music recommendations.”

A statement from the site says: “Of course you’ll still be able to listen to all of your favourite stations on the new Last.fm Player, as well as listen to your favourite tracks with our recently launched on-demand playback feature via Spotify.

“In addition, we’re also updating the subscriptions package to include two new exclusive subscriber features – an awesome new tag filter feature on the Last.fm player enabling you to plug into any genre like never before and a sizable discount at the new Last.fm merchandise store where you can pick up a whole host of new Last.fm-branded goods.”
