Time Warner Cable has added the Slacker Internet music service to its new Web portal, TWC Central, that’s available to more than 11 million high-speed Internet subscribers.
TWC is offering access to Slacker’s lineup of curated streaming radio stations and an on-demand library of more than 13 million songs at http://twcc.slacker.com. Slacker offers a free, ad-supported service, plus two subscription tiers: Slacker Premium ($9.99 per month) and Slacker Plus ($3.99 per month).
Slacker, a service founded in 2010 that offers a mix of services found in online music services such as Pandora and Spotify, also has billing and distribution deals with major mobile providers, including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular.
The deal adds a new music component to TWC Central, the MSO’s customer portal for news, entertainment, information, social networking, and access to Time Warner Cable products and services.
