New York — AOL Radio, currently powered by CBS, will be relaunching this summer with a new partner, Slacker Inc.
The music service will allow AOL users to choose updated features from their current internet radio station, which has 350 stations and options to skip songs. Listeners will have their choice of three service tiers: free ad-supported streaming radio; paid subscription streaming radio without ads; and a paid premium subscription on-demand service.
This will be AOL’s second partnership announced this week, having announced their plans to partner with Vevo for its live music series, Sessions +1, on Monday, Mashable reported.
Slacker launched in March 2007 with their first on-demand product being launched in May of this year.
