RDIO has entered into an exclusive partnership with AXS, an AEG joint venture, that enables concert goers to hear their favorite songs anytime, anywhere even before the concert starts -- on mobile phones, on the web, in some cars and on Internet-connected TVs and wireless speakers.
All AXS.com ticket buyers will automatically be eligible to receive free, trial subscriptions to RDIO Unlimited, which provides on-demand access to RDIO’s catalog of more than 32 million songs. RDIO Unlimited also includes RDIO's curated Internet radio stations that create programming based on genres and your musical tastes.
“We are thrilled to partner with AXS to provide millions of concert goers access to our vast music library of over 32 million songs through this seamless integration with the live performance purchase experience,” said RDIO CEO ANTHONY BAY. “RDIO’s music discovery features and unlimited streaming service will provide AXS customers a unique and always on experience that is second only to hearing your favorite music live.”
“AXS has always been about more than just ticketing. Our goal is to provide technologies that unify every aspect of the event experience and RDIO’s superior user experience and deep catalog will allow AXS.com users to easily find and listen to their favorite music, discover new artists they might want to see live, and help us alert them to events by their favorite artists," said AXS CEO BRYAN PEREZ. "We are excited to partner with and support RDIO to bring the music-listening experience from the concert venue to your home, office and smartphone.”
