Cür Music breaks $9.99-a-month subscription mould


Cür Media has launched its Cür Music streaming service in the US, breaking the mould of the familiar $9.99-a-month music subscription.

The ad-free service is described as “a mix of internet radio, expertly curated stations, and your own playlists all-in-one”, with a choice of two subscription tiers: ‘Octo’ for $2.99 a month, and ‘Inked’ for $6.99 a month. The main difference being that Inked users get an offline-listening mode.

    They didn’t break any mold. The $9.99 price point, dictated by the major labels, is for ‘all-you-can-eat’ on-demand. Not even Apple could break the ‘mold’. Cur is a much more limited service, not particularly novel, and priced accordingly.

    Their service seems like a great alternative for the great MixRadio app/site that was recently closed by Line. Unfortunately the don’t offer their app in Europe yet so it seems. I would love to subscribe and use it in the Netherlands. I also still hope that Slacker Radio will come to Europe some day. Their subscription services for a 4 dollars (Slacker Radio Plus) with offline mixes and unlimited skips seems a great value for money. Unfortunately Pandora recently took over Rdio but didn’t launch yet in Europe. There is now no good alternative here for 4/5 euros a month.

    Only Pandora, Deezer, Apple Music, Google Play Music are there but all cost 10 euros a month and don’t offer smartradio offline options like Mixradio had.
