If you love having your tunes on you at all times, and being able to instantly upload new hits, then you're going to love the all-new CBC Music, which just launched today.
The debut service will stream 40 web radio stations in 13 genres as well as feature blogs from some of the station's most popular personalities. They are also consolidating programming materials from their existing radio channels Radio 2 and Radio 3.
The new initiative allows the public broadcaster "to connect with listeners in something we've done well - music - but in new ways," said Chris Boyce, executive driector of radio and audio for CBC English Services. "Not only are we providing music, we're helping people find the music and understand the music. There's a ton of rich content that helps people understand the music as well as listen to it."
CBC's international counterparts, like NPR and the BBC, have had much success with their own music streaming. Both Astral and Rdio already released similar versions of music streaming services in the last few weeks.
CBC Music is available at the Apple App Store.
