Slacker has added ON demand music, Slacker Premium Radio with 8 million tracks AND competING directly with MOG, Rdio, Rhapsody and if it ever makes it TO the US, Spotify. With the launch, Slacker becomes the first music service to deliver three complementary tiers: free ad supported interactive streams, subscription based ad-free radio with extra features, and on-demand music with Slacker Premium Radio. The trio could prove a powerful lure as users try the free service and then upgrade.
