Last.Fm Shuts Down Radio Streaming


Online streaming and music discovery site Last.fm will be shutting down its subscription streaming radio service as of April 28th. The site will still be offering some streaming via a new system but will be focusing on music discovery, scrobbling tracks providing recommendations to its user-base.

Most of the music on the site will be outsourced from other mediums including YouTube, Vevo and Spotify. Last.fm’s directing body, Simon Moran states to Billboard:

“Following the launch of the new Last.fm Player earlier this year and Last.fm’s partnership with Spotify for demand playback we’ve revised the subscription service in order to focus on the new Last.fm Player and Last.fm’s over-arching mission: world class music recommendations”.
