Streaming music service Rdio has gone live in Spain and Portugal, making them its seventh and eighth markets. The service has a catalogue of more than 12m songs in both countries, and its apps are live there too alongside its web-based service. Users will get a seven-day trial before being asked to pay €4.99 a month for web-only access or €9.99 for web+mobile access. “International expansion has always been a part of the Rdio roadmap as we share the DNA and relationships of our founders who turned Skype into an international success,” says CEO Drew Larner in a statement. Spain in particular has been a difficult market for digital music thanks to widespread piracy. The two new countries join the US, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Australia and New Zealand on Rdio’s roster.
