Rhapsody Launches on Xbox LIVE
SEATTLE, WA, Dec 04, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Playing on Xbox 360(R) has taken new meaning. Today, Rhapsody
announced that its premium on-demand music service is now available
on Xbox LIVE(R), bringing millions of songs, playlists and radio
stations into millions of living rooms.
"Many families will be gathering around their Xbox this holiday
season, and this year, Rhapsody can provide the soundtrack to those
memories," said Brian McGarvey, vice president, business development,
Rhapsody. "People talk about social music as something that happens
online, but there's no better place to share music than with family
and friends at home, especially this time of year."
Rhapsody designed the experience specifically for Xbox, with stunning
graphics and integration of voice commands and gestures with Kinect
for Xbox 360. Like Rhapsody's apps for Smart TVs, the Xbox 360 app
will make it easy to quickly find and play your favorite music, with
radio, new releases, popular albums and member playlists featured
prominently. Listeners have access to the entire Rhapsody catalog, as
well as featured editorial stations that are hand-crafted by
Rhapsody's expert staff.

Rhapsody members and Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers. Screen shots and
