Last.fm Radio will remain free on the Last.fm website in the US, UK, and Germany as well as the Last.fm desktop app. Furthermore, Xbox Live and Windows Phone 7 users in the US and UK will also continue to be able to use the service for free (we wonder how much Microsoft paid to subsidize the service to keep its users on the gratis side). Here is the list of devices and the associated subscription requirements that are affected by this change:
"On the Last.fm website an ad-supported, free-to-listeners model is what supports our online radio services in the US, UK and Germany," a Last.fm spokesperson said in a statement. "In other markets and on emerging mobile and home entertainment devices, it is not practical for us to deliver an ad supported radio experience, but instead, we will migrate to what we believe is the highest quality, lowest cost ad-free music service in the world. You'll see that this change brings us in line with other music services that already charge you to listen to music on mobile devices. For the cost of a fancy coffee, a Last.fm monthly subscription allows you to listen to radio across all platforms, on all your devices, and without commercial interruptions."
