I don’t know, you wait years for a music streaming service focussed entirely on children’s music, then two come along at once. Napster and Rhapsody BOTH announced such a set-up yesterday. Ah, I’m joking with you of course, Napster and Rhapsody are the same company, it just uses different names in different countries. I have more jokes where that came from and am available for children’s parties.

Anyway, this streaming service. Depending on where you live in the world, it’s either called Rhapsody Kids or Napster Kids. It’s available to premium subscribers of either service and filled entirely with music aimed at children under the age of ten. I can’t believe no one’s thought of this before.

“As the original streaming music service, we now have customers that have moved into a new chapter of their life and are hungry for a way to share music with their kids”, said Thorsten Schliesche, EVP and General Manager for Napster. “With Napster Kids, we’re excited for parents to share their love of music with their young kids in a fun, safe and controlled environment”.

Meanwhile Rhapsody CFO Ethan Rudin added: “As the original streaming music service, we have a deep base of customers that have moved into a new chapter of their life and are hungry for a way to share music with their kids. With Rhapsody Kids, we’re excited for parents to share their love of music with their young kids in a fun, safe and controlled environment”.

Is there an echo in here?
