TIME WARNER CABLE is pitching broadband customers on an alternative to APPLE's iTUNES Music Store, with two music-subscription services that provide access to more than three million songs and music videos. The operator's ROAD RUNNER Music service -- currently compatible only with Windows computers -- includes unlimited access to songs, ad-free radio and music videos for $9.95 per month. The second service, ROAD RUNNER Music Portable, allows subscribers to play that content on up to three portable media players for an additional $5 per month.
"These enhanced music products offer superb functionality and a solid value for our customers," said TIME WARNER CABLE GROUP VP/ROAD RUNNER STEVE COOK, in a statement. "We are pleased to offer our customers music products that are convenient and easy to use both in the home and on the go."
