Ad-Supported Imeem Now Has All the Major Labels December 10, 2007Posted by David Card in Media.
Imeem signed up Universal Music Group, making it the first ad-supported on-demand streaming music service I’m aware of to line up all of the Big Four labels. Imeem feels more like a social network than a music service, which might be a good thing for some audiences. Imeem is dependent on what its members have uploaded, so its catalog is hit or miss — even with the big four — and its track information and quality a little sketchy. But you can often find stuff you probably wouldn’t find at iTunes or Rhapsody, which is one of the few things we identified as a P2P benefit.
