The popular music streaming site MOG announced on Thursday that it would be launching a service called FreePlay, which means that subscribers to the site would be able to get free access to MOG’s 12 million song catalog. This new service follows on the heels of the European-based, ad-supported, music streaming service, Spotify, that reached the US market starting in July.
MOG writes on itsthat FreePlay subscribers “will receive 60 days of ad–free music service, with the ability “to earn free music in perpetuity, simply by listening, sharing with friends, making playlists, and exploring MOG“.
MOG further says that “the service is designed so that the more you listen, share and explore the service, the more free music you’ll earn. We’ll continue to expand the ways in which users can earn more free music”.
The advantages of subscribing to a music streaming service means you do not need to download music files to your computer, and thus not have to worry about archiving and backing up songs. You access your music in the cloud. MOG, like other similar services, does provide the option to purchase MP3 songs and albums from the site.
You can sign up for the FreePlay service via MOG’s Facebook Connect registration process, or by simply creating an account without using FC.
MOG of course offers premium paid accounts which are totally ad–free, with options for streaming music via its mobile apps for the iPhone and Android.
