Play.fm is a streaming music service. But unlike Rhapsody, MOG, Slacker, or Pandora, the focus isn’t on songs, artists, or radio stations. Instead Play.fm streams DG sets. And this week the company launched a set of mobile apps for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 7 that allow you to stream mixes from DJs in over 180 countries to your phone.
You can filter sets by genre, search for your favorites, or jump to any part within a mix.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that pricing is a bit tricky. The apps run about 3 Euros, or just over $4 each. But that only includes 90 days of unlimited music streaming. After that you only get 5 hours per month for free. You’ll have to sign up for a Play.fm premium subscription if you want to keep the music going longer than that. Unfortunately there’s no information about how much that will cost yet, since Play.fm premium won’t launch until the second quarter of 2011.
