Yahoo to end subscription music service

February 05, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Yahoo Inc. will cease operating its online music subscription service and switch customers to RealNetworks Inc.'s Rhapsody service as part of a deal that calls for Yahoo to promote Rhapsody on its site.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Scott Moore, Yahoo's head of media, said the partnership would allow Yahoo to focus its energies more on free, ad-supported music and other media offerings.

Subscribers to Yahoo Music Unlimited will be shifted to the Rhapsody service sometime in the first half of this year.
