While we still haven’t seen Spotify appear, the range of streaming music options in Australia continues to steadily expand. Hot on the heels of JB Hi-Fi Now and Rdio, new service Rara.com claims to offer access to 10 million tracks.
Unlike its rivals, Rara.com doesn’t offer a free trial, but its pricing is fairly competitive for the desktop. The regular charge is $7.99 a month, but the service is offering the first three months at 99 cents. Adding the Android mobile app gets somewhat pricier; that costs $12.99 a month usually, with a ‘special’ price of $2.99 a month. Like Rdio, there’s no long-term contract.
