MOG, launched its subscription-based online music service back in December 2009, for $4.99 a month customers can access 7.5 million songs. Today, MOG has announced its partnership with Roku, the affordable entertainment streaming set-top box that comes in 3 flavors: Roku SD, Roku HD and Roku HDXR (includes extended Wireless-N). Roku recently launched its cool new Netflix interface.
Starting from this summer, Roku owners can subscribe to the basic MOG offering for $4.99 and for $9.99, they will be able to access MOG using the Roku player, from their PC and by downloading the soon to be released mobile apps (iPhone and Android).
I tried quickly the application from my PC and I liked the user interface, especially the “slider” that allows users to discover similar artists to the ones they are listening. (check out the demo in the video in the complete article). According to Drew Denbo, SVP business development at MOG, the company delivers higher sound quality than most of the on-demand music services out there, offering 256 to 320 kbps Mp3 instead of the regular 92 kbps Mp3.
