SiriusXM Revamps Entire System To Stay Competitive

SiriusXM satellite radio will soon offer personal radio channels, kinda like what Pandora has got going on for them. I guess SiriusXM thought it was time to change the way they operate if they plan on remaining a player in the audio space.

SiriusXM’s new radio channels will be able to replay, skip, and ban songs, as well as some on-demand features. You’ll also be able to use it on your TiVo which might make the hefty monthly packages a bit more reasonable.

Spotify Gets Sued For Patent Infringement

Just two weeks after entering the U.S. market, Spotify has been sued for patent infringement by the PacketVideo, a Wireless Multimedia Platform Creator.

Spotify had recently signed up 70,000 paid users in it’s first week. The claim of PacketVideo is that Spotify did not follow certain recommendations and restrictions which every video streaming website should follow.

The PacketVideo claims that every video streaming website should have “A Device for the distribution of music information in digital form.”

Spotify, Everything iTunes Should Have Been

Okay, so I just got the e-mail after my boss had invited me to Spotify. I downloaded the .exe file, not completely sure of what to expect. I knew what Spotify was and have heard the glowing reviews, but you know how people tend to exaggerate things, especially in the media :P.

Been listening for about 20 minutes and I am just floored. The number of independent/rare tracks is mind boggling. I listen to mostly underground electronic music, so it’s hard to find the music I am into.

Audiosocket Launches MaaS For Music Licenses

An independent music licensing and tech company, dubbed Audiosocket, is launching a new program today called Music as a Service (MaaS). The new platform will give developers a new way to give users the ability to license music for applications.

The phrase Music as a Service is quite new, but derives from the long existing ‘Software as a Service’, which is abbreviated as SaaS.

The Breakdown On Music Streaming Service, Spotify

Spotify is a huge music streaming service that just launched here in the U.S. after much success abroad. The music is composed of underground and mainstream labels and brings the best of both worlds.

It differs from Pandora (Internet Radio Station) in a number of ways. Firstly, you can freely search for a song out of a database of 15 million tracks, rather than randomly listen and hope for a song you like to pop up, as how Pandora currently works.

Spotify Comes To U.S. Residents, Perhaps For A Facebook Debut?

Spotify, a Swedish DRM-based music streaming service includes both major labels such as Sony, EMI, and Universal, and independent labels. The startup was launched in October of 2008, and I am please to announce that the service will soon be available to U.S. customers.

The announcement was actually made earlier in the month when Spotify had confirmed that it would come to the U.S., although it had not provided a specific launch date.

A Facebook Music Dashboard On The Way?

There are rumors that Facebook is working on a music “dashboard”, a tab in the home page that allows for music streaming services. Although I don’t know how this will fare against signing directly into Pandora, I do have to commend the social media platform for finding another way to keep users tuned in.

The music will be available in the aforementioned tab on the left-hand side of Facebook’s home page, leading to music-streaming services such as Spotify.
