Rdio Will Be Cancelling Subscriptions Starting Tomorrow

Illustration for article titled Rdio Will Be Cancelling Subscriptions Starting Tomorrow

As you’ve probably heard if you’re an Rdio user, the music-streaming service is shuttering its doors. The fate of the company’s assets is clear—sold for $75 million to Pandora—but the wind-down process has now been outlined.


Effective the 23rd November, Rdio will stop accepting new subscriptions, and begin cancelling new accounts. Users’ accounts will remain active for however long they’ve paid for. The service will be winding down “in the coming weeks”, with the ad-supported free version remaining available to everyone for that time.

So what exactly is Pandora paying $75M for if they're cancelling all subscriptions? After my modest fee, I could have saved them $70M by advising against this purchase.
