Two bits of news for you from MOG, the subscription-based streaming music service already active in the US and planning a UK launch.

First up, MOG have done a deal with electronics firm Roki, who specialise in digital music and radio-style devices that take content off the internet, via either a wifi or ethernet link. As part of the deal, Roki will make a MOG subscription available to owners of its devices for five dollars a month. Meanwhile, MOG’s previously reported iPhone app, which works a bit like Spotify and We7’s apps, and which takes the online MOG service mobile, even when out of active 3G range, has been approved by the app twonks at Apple.

MOG top man David Hyman said yesterday: “Our goal, when we started MOG, was to deliver MOG everywhere people want to consume music. We started by bringing MOG to the PC in December, and then we introduced our mobile app. Now, via our partnership with Roku, the market leader in internet streaming media players, we’re bringing the best digital music experience to people’s living rooms”.
