Nokia Music welcomes Nokia Music+, premium streaming at €3.99 per month

Nokia Music welcomes Nokia Music+, premium streaming at €3.99 per monthIt’s probably fair to say that Nokia Music has been pretty well received, offering free music streaming without ads, and without the need to register or subscribe. Not too shabby.

The Finns have been talking up a new paid version called Nokia Music+, priced roughly €3.99/$3.99 per month, and introducing a handful of premium features.

Nokia Music+ has yet to roll out, though there’s plenty of detail over on Conversations by Nokia (formerly, uhm, Nokia Conversations).

Jyrki Rosenberg, VP of Entertainment at Nokia, roars: “This is for people who care enough about music to pay something for more quality and choice, but don’t want to pay €9.99 monthly.”

So what do you get from Nokia Music+ for your monthly €3.99? For starters, there’s unlimited skips, and unlimited downloads for offline play (the free service is restricted to four Mixes).

Also exclusive to Nokia Music+ are lyrics, desktop play, and – perhaps most attractive to musos – eight times the audio quality of the free Nokia Music.

Finally, we’re told that price will “vary slightly” according to territory, but Nokia Music+ will cost “around €3.99/$3.99”.

Sounds a good deal depending on the depth of content a veritable bargain (even at the likely £3.99)
At 8 times the quality (which seems hard to judge) I bet it'll burn through EEs data pretty quick. (Been using Google music while testing virgin`s unlimited data and I've gone through almost 2gb in just four days...)

Able to listen on web app and smart TVs in time too, sounds ever more promising

Yeah not sure how that works, would like to see how they quantify it. X-factor fans need not apply?
