Bluesound is partnering with Rhapsody to expand its collection of music services. Rhapsody delivers unlimited, uninterrupted access to its catalog of over 32 million tracks. A recent winner of the UK’s What HiFi? Sound & Vision Best Multiroom System of the Year Award, Bluesound has introduced its latest software release to enable owners to fully enjoy Rhapsody’s immersive music experience anywhere in the home with exclusive editorial content free from distracting advertising.
With Rhapsody Premier, Bluesound owners can stream their favorite music or personalized radio stations to any Player through a home network. Browsing Rhapsody’s catalog of millions of songs and curated playlists, creating personalized playlists and ad-free music stations, and accessing thousands of AM/FM radio stations from around the world is simple and intuitive on the Bluesound Controller App. To allow Bluesound owners to experience this legendary service, Rhapsody will offer a free two month trial subscription to Bluesound users in the U.S.
“Rhapsody is one of the original music subscription services and its model of innovation and dedication to music discovery is perfectly aligned with Bluesound’s goal to have everyone Living HiFi,” said John Banks, Chief Brand Officer for Bluesound. “It’s all about letting Bluesound owners hear the music they love.”
“Rhapsody users are streaming from connected speakers more than ever before,” said Brian McGarvey, Vice President of Business Development at Rhapsody International. “Bluesound offers the high quality audio experience that music lovers want and Rhapsody looks forward to filling their homes with great music.”
To enjoy Rhapsody on Bluesound, owners must subscribe to a Premier account. Rhapsody is offering a free two (2) month trial subscription to Rhapsody Premier (in the U.S. only). Sign up is quick and easy directly through the free Bluesound Controller App available on all iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as a desktop version for PCs and Macs, available for download directly from the Bluesound website.
BluOS 1.14.0 will be available December 10, 2014. Bluesound owners are asked to upgrade all their Bluesound Players to BluOS firmware version 1.14.0 or higher in order to stream Rhapsody Premier.
