Rdio upgrades family plans to allow up to 5 people

Rdio Family Plans (teaser 001)

The popular Internet-based radio service, Rdio, today announced it has refreshed its subscription plans for families to allow up to five people on a single plan. Previously, only three people on a family plan were allowed to use the service. The online radio service has also amended its pricing to reflect these changes, offering a $17 saving for a family of five compared to individual plans…

Rdio explains in a blog post that a main account holder simply adds sub-accounts to his or her subscription. This allows each family member to have their own Rdio Unlimited account.

Individual sub-accounts can build their own Collection, playlists, network of followers and more, without having to share their personalized settings with other sub-accounts.

Here are the new tiers:

• Two accounts cost $17.99 per month
• Three accounts cost $22.99 per month
• Four members cost $27.99 per month
• Five members cost $32.99 per month

If you’re a paid Rdio customer (I use Spotify in conjunction with iTunes Radio), these prices should pique your interest – not just for the savings, but because it’s much more convenient for your family to use a single shared plan.
