(NEW YORK) -- The online radio service Slacker entered the field of on-demand music and talk Tuesday with its launch of Slacker Premium Radio. The new service will charge users for unlimited access to the company's catalogue of 8 million songs and will cost $9.99 per month.
Slacker had previously offered two versions of its service: a free version that provides listeners limited access to streaming music and news radio, and Slacker Plus, a paid version that strips away advertisements and allows users to further customize their experience. Current subscribers will have to upgrade to get access to the "Premium" features.
The service is available on personal computers and many mobile devices.
