Rdio launches $4 music streaming option

by Ramon Mejia

There are many music streaming services out there and they average about $10 a month for their ad free option. According to BuzzFeed, Rdio has just launched a new option hoping to undercut the competition with a cheaper monthly pay option of $3.99 per month.  This new option is called Rdio Select and has two parts: 1) Pandora-like streaming radio stations, without ads, and with unlimited skips, 2) Your choice of 25 songs to download and listen to offline. Switch the songs out as often as you like, just don't exceed the 25 song limit. 

Rdio has a much smaller share of the streaming music market. This move may attract enough new subscribers that the lower monthly price makes sense for them.
