Samsung launches new streaming service in US

By | Published on Monday 10 March 2014


Samsung is having yet another go at digital music, after possibly phasing out its most recent musical endeavour Music Hub (though this new service is currently US-only, so it’s not clear what’s happening elsewhere, because Music Hub was in multiple territories).

The new offer is called Milk Music, for reasons no one’s clear on, and is a Pandora-style streaming set up that is both subscription and ad free – for the time being at least – but only available to consumers using Samsung Galaxy or Galaxy Note phones in the US.

The new service is actually powered by an existing player in the streaming music space, Slacker Radio, which already operates a platform of the interactive radio kind in North America with ad-funded freemium and subscription-based options.
