AOL launches new music services

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 23 Jul 2001 2:52

Media giant AOL TimeWarner announced two new music services for consumers. Services are Artist Discovery Network and Radio@AOL.
Artist Discovery Network basically hits to MP3.com's and Vitaminic's markets promoting "undiscovered" new and independent artists. Of course their main focus will be in promoting Warner Music's new artists (Warner Music is a subsdiary of AOL TimeWarner).

Radio@AOL will bundle 45 radio channels from AOL's existing radio service, Spinner, and add numerous other channels to package as well. This service is then available only for AOL users -- meanwhile Spinner is going to stay as a free service for all web users.

According to Media Metrix, AOL Music was the number 1 music destination on the web in June 2001.
