Rdio’s Streaming Music Service Goes Live on Fire TV

Streaming music service Rdio released an app for Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV stick Wednesday, bringing its catalog of more than 30 million songs to the devices. Fire TV owners can access both Rdio’s free, Pandora-like radio service, as well as Rdio’s full on-demand streaming tier, which is available for $10 a month.

Rdio’s Fire TV app is notable because it’s the first third-party music subscription service to have a full-fledged app on the platform. Amazon’s own Prime Music Unlimited service is obviously available through Fire TV but features a much smaller catalog. Spotify users can beam their music from the service’s mobile apps to any Fire TV via the company’s Spotify Connect feature, but there’s currently no native Spotify app available on Fire TV.

Connected devices like Fire TV, Roku’s streaming boxes and smart TVs have been growing in importance for streaming music services in recent years. A recent study from Edison Research has shown that consumers do more than 50% of their music listening at home, with streaming services now making up for close to 12% of all audio consumption, compared to around 20% for CDs and digital music downloads.
