WIRED MAGAZINE is reporting that SLACKER "plans to launch an on-demand subscription service combining elements of PANDORA, RHAPSODY and SPOTIFY in the next few months. SLACKER’s on-demand music subscription service will include deep ties to its free interactive radio offerings, giving the company a chance to upsell monthly music subscriptions from its popular free and paid radio apps. In addition to designating a currently playing song as a favorite to make it play more frequently, listeners will be able to subscribe to hear the track whenever they want."
SLACKER provides an interactive radio service on various platforms, including the web, iPHONE, BLACKBERRY, ANDROID, PALM and others.
WIRED writes that no info is yet available on a launch date or price for the service.
