CBC has today launched CBC Music - Canada's free digital music service designed to connect Canadians to the music they love. Not only can you listen to the much loved CBC music radio stations - Radio 2 and Radio 3 - but there are almost 40 different web radio stations to enjoy, with 14 distinct genre based communities and music from nearly 1,000 major and independent music companies.
Featuring original content from some of the most knowledgeable and experienced music personalities from across the country, there are endless concerts, features, blogs, playlists, and even more. The new music service is a place for music lovers to explore, discover and connect with other music fans. For example, take a look at Don Cherry's personal playlist (he listens to Deadmau5!), recap the Grammys and hear the latest track from Joel Plaskett's new record.
With the new CBC Music app for iPod, iPhone and iPad you can also stream all the radio stations (as well as CBC Radio 2 and CBC Radio 3) on the go - for free.
Chris Boyce, executive director of radio and audio of CBC English Services said, "CBC Music successfully connects Canadians with music when and how they want it, and provides an unmatched experience for music lovers across the country. As a modern public broadcaster, we're proud to bring this rich digital experience to Canadians, using the knowledge, content and extensive music collection that only CBC can offer."
