Nokia Music+ now available in the U.S. for Lumia owners

Less than a week after launching in Europe, Nokia has made its Music+ service available in the U.S.
The new music subscription service is exclusively for users of their Lumia Windows Phone devices. The service will add on to the current free "Mix Radio" service while bringing a number of extras.

New features for paying subscribers:
Unlimited skips. Whether you like to skip from track to track, or just want extra control over what you hear. There's no stopping you with Nokia Music+.

Unlimited downloads. The free service allows you to download up to four Mixes (each of which contains hours of music) and play them without an Internet connection. The paid service removes this limit you can download a massive supply of offline music you can swap as you wish.

Higher quality. We were surprised by the high quality of streaming music from Nokia Music, even over a 2.5G connection. Nokia Music+ allows you to download music at eight times the existing quality. Plus, you can set rules to only download high quality when you're on WiFi, for example.

Lyrics. Words to the songs you're listening to, right on your Nokia Lumia. Either in a scrolling list, Karaoke-style format, or a display you can scroll up and down.

On your desktop. The Nokia Music+ subscription also gives you access to the service without your phone. A web-app gives you the ability to play Mixes on your computer, smart TV or other connected screens.

Best of all, the service only costs $4 per month. See more here: Nokia Music+
