Kim Dotcom's 'Baboom' music streaming site now live in beta Kim Dotcom, the larger-than-life founder of Megaupload and now "MEGA," has introduced his Baboom music streaming site in beta.
In its preview mode, there is just one album, a europop album made by Dotcom himself which includes some contributions from unknown artists, including his wife Mona Dotcom.

Eventually, when it fully launches, Baboom will let you stream and download music, including HD file types like FLAC.

Differentiating itself from other services, Dotcom will allow users to install an advertising plugin to their current browser and be rewarded with ongoing free music.

Baboom reported 80,000 plays in its first hour online.

Check the site here.
