CBC/Radio-Canada launched a free music service Monday for access to the CBC’s musical library. The new service, called CBC Music, will provide users with 40 different Internet radio stations “built from a library of millions of tracks of music,” CBC said in a release. It will also offer “14 distinct genre-based communities … music from nearly 1,000 major and independent music companies,” live streaming of linear radio stations CBC Radio 2 and CBC Radio 3, and the “best music content from a variety of CBC programs including Q and George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight,” the public broadcaster said. Users will also have access to feature content, including concert recordings, articles, blogs and pre-set playlists, the CBC added. A supporting free mobile application was also released. The CBC Music App will allow users to access the content on iPods, iPads, and iPhones, the CBC said. Online viewers can also access the new CBC Music service at its cbcmusic.ca website. The public broadcaster announced a major digital licensing agreement with the Audio-Video Licensing Agency (AVLA) on Jan. 24. The deal was the first negotiated collective licensing agreement in Canada for online streaming and podcasting of radio and online digital music programming, the CBC said at the time.
