Not a dull moment in the world of startup and technology. If you missed some of our posts, here’s a quick recap.
Music streaming service Rdio has acquired Dhingana, which had recently shut down its operations. The acquisition amount has not been disclosed as yet.
The shutdown of streaming music startup Dhingana is perhaps the first of its kind to expose problems in the industry, which make it tough for startups to bring streaming music to consumers.
If you have missed out on all the action we covered this week, here’s a curated list.
Goodbye! We hope that you enjoyed listening to Dhingana as much as we enjoyed building it. But alas, all good things must come to an end. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us be a part of your musical moments! – The Dhingana Team”
For all those who missed out on the action, here is a curated list of all the stuff that we covered last week.
Music streaming site Dhingana might be shutting down. The company has been struggling to monetize while record labels have hiked licensing costs.
Indian music streaming service Dhingana has partnered with telecom operator Idea Cellular to launch a co-branded music subscription service which allows users to download unlimited music with no data charges. Users will have to pay the usual subscription fee though.
The subscription is an in-app purchase and costs $1.99. New users get a 15 day free trial. At present, the only way the site makes money is through advertisements.
The radio stations are programmed and curated by Dhingana’s music experts, the company said.
