Rdio now free for first 6 months in UK. Audio, Apps, Rdio 0

Rdio has confirmed that it will offer free music to desktop and web users of its streaming music service in the UK for six months

Until now, customers have had just seven days free music and before being forced to pay for the service.

According to Rdio: “This new offer is specifically designed to appeal to people with ears and hearts.” Many suspect however, that it is because listener numbers aren’t where the company wants them to be and that it needs to drive adoption rates higher if it is to complete with the likes of Spotify.

Users who take advantage of the six-months’ free offer will get access to over 18 million tracks. But don’t expect free to mean unlimited.
