Pure challenges Spotify with cloud-based music service
Get tuned in
DAB radio specialist Pure has revealed its take on Spotify, launching a cloud-based music service for streaming tunes across a variety of platforms.
For a subscription of £5 a month, Pure Music streams millions of songs, mixes and radio channels to laptops, smartphones and - yep - its DAB radios.
As with Nokia's new music platform, Pure will let users listen to music offline too, tagging the tracks they like for times with no signal. That'll be included at a later date, though, and may fall under a different pricing tier.
There is also free mobile apps for iPhone and one for Android on the way, which gives any user signed up to the service access to tunes on the move.
UK peeps are to be given a taste first, when it launches through a free upgrade this December. To register your interest in Pure Music, pop over to the company's website. ®
