iHeart’s On-Demand Services Are Up and Running

Listeners across the country can now get a free taste of iHeartRadio's two new on-demand services: iHeartRadio Plus and iHeartRadio All Access. The official launch of the products will be in January, but iHeartRadio app users will have an opportunity to sample the two new products over the next 30 days. iHeart hopes being able to save songs from live radio, replay them at will and have unlimited skips will give the company an advantage over all other streaming companies now in this space. The question is will consumers pay $5 or $10 per month for those features?
