Nokia introduces subscription option to Music service
Nokia is introducing an upgrade option to its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278087==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/09/04/nokias.customizable.music.streaming.service.now.av ailable.in.the.us/" rel='nofollow'>Music</a> service, with minor service improvements given in exchange for a subscription bringing it in line with premium-tier offerings from other services like Spotify. Nokia Music+ will expand on the existing free Mix Radio service by offering access away from Nokia handsets, the removal of download limits, and an improvement of sound quality. <br />
<br />
Users will get an unlimited number of track skips for mixes, and can also download more than the current limit of four Mixes at a time, each Mix consisting of over an hour's worth of music, and can be played without an Internet connection, according to a company blog <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278088==http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/01/27/more-from-your-music/" rel='nofollow'>post</a>. The Music+ quality is also said to be up to eight times the quality of the free tier, and also includes the option of setting when downloads of the high-quality streams can occur, such as when on a Wi-Fi connection. A web app will allow access to Music+ through a computer or smart TV as well as Lumia devices, while lyrics for songs can be downloaded and scrolled through as a song plays through.

Nokia Music+, rolling out in the coming weeks, will cost around $4 per month, depending on territory.
