SLACKER, INC. has announced that SONOS customers can now enjoy its over 150 music stations, personalized ABC news, ESPN Radio content, comedy, artist-hosted showcase stations, leading music festival stations and much more. SLACKER's recently announced lifestyle stations, in conjunction with ABC, are planned to be launched shortly.
All three SLACKER RADIO tiers of service are available on SONOS -- entirely free SLACKER Basic Radio, ad-free SLACKER radio plus and on-demand SLACKER Premium Radio. Listeners can enjoy ad-free personal radio and unlimited song skips with a Radio Plus subscription, and Premium gives subscribers customizable radio and on-demand music access in one service.
"Sonos has always been about people being able to listen to music however they want in their homes," SONOS CEO JOHN MACFARLANE said. "The addition of SLACKER RADIO to SONOS provides another level of listening to our customers with Slacker's versatile, customizable service."
"We are excited to bring a complete SLACKER RADIO experience to SONOS," SLACKER SVP/Marketing JONATHAN SASSE said. "This partnership has been highly anticipated among our listeners for some time, and now we can give our customers the same great SLACKER Radio experience they have come to expect on SONOS devices throughout their homes."
