iHeartMedia Set to Launch Paid Streaming Service

Being a radio network just doesn't cut it anymore.

[SOURCE -Billboard] The radio conglomerate will launch a two-tiered offering next year.

As iHeartMedia gears up for its showpiece music festival in Las Vegas this weekend, the company is readying another big event: the announcement of its own paid on-demand streaming service, a source confirms. The launch is expected early next year.

The service is said to be modeled similarly to those announced by Pandora and Amazon last week with two tiered options: a $5-per-month ad-free radio service, which could be labeled "Plus"; and a $10-per-month on-demand streaming service. The news was first reported by the New York Post.
