Yahoo! and Rhapsody America announced a broad strategic relationship in digital music. Rhapsody will be the exclusive on-demand music service for Yahoo!, replacing Yahoo! Music Unlimited. Yahoo! and Rhapsody also intend to collaborate on other digital music services such as music downloads. The partnership introduces Rhapsodyâ€™s subscription music service to the largest online music audience through Yahoo! Music and reinforces Yahoo!â€™s focus on providing users with a destination to easily access the best music services and content from across the web.
In the coming months, Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscribers will be migrated to Rhapsodyâ€™s digital music service through a simple process that will convert Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscribersâ€™ music libraries to Rhapsody. Current Yahoo! Music subscribers will have the opportunity to maintain their existing pricing tiers for a limited time period after migration to the Rhapsody service. Additional details will be communicated to Yahoo! Music subscribers closer to the date when account migration begins.
