Beats Music streaming music service launched Tuesday (Jan. 21) and is now available for iOS, Android, Windows phones and the Web. For a monthly $9.99 subscription fee, music lovers can enjoy a catalog of over 20 million songs.

New York Hip Hop and R&B radio station, HOT 97 teamed up with Beats Music to provide fans with curated playlists on behalf of world renowned DJs and Hip Hop icons. HOT 97 and its Los Angeles based affiliate station will be the exclusive radio stations for the music service platform.

“We’re excited to have this opportunity to partner with Beats Music and bring our music and brand via a new way of streaming. On January 21, make sure you check out ‘The Tunnel’ playlist!,” HOT 97’s vice president of programming, Ebro Darden said in a news release to Examiner.

Along with the arrival of Beats Music comes the discontinuation of Beats Electronics acquired MOG music service. Current MOG subscribers will receive service and support until its April 15 shutdown date. Beats Electronics announced on its support website Monday that billing will stop on March 15 and prorated refunds will be issued to yearly subscribers who wish to cancel. Alternatively, existing subscribers can take advantage of the one month free trial of Beats Music being offered in an effort to transition MOG customers over to the new service.

“Beats Music combines the emotion only a human created playlist can give you with the best personalization technology can deliver. With this you get not just the music experience only a talented DJ or music expert can deliver, but also the right one for you right now," Beats Music CEO Ian Rogers said.
