Samsung to start charging about the price of a gallon for "Milk"

Milk Music Premium

Were you one of the many enjoying your free “Milk”? Well, Milk Music is having a price increase for a new premium service.

Samsung will still be providing its free basic service, but will be including ads. Currently the service is ad-free as part of a special introductory offer. The premium service will cost you $3.99 for ad-free music after the introductory offer ends.

Milk Music is a streaming radio service powered by Slacker and offered to select Galaxy models. The current device list incldues: Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5.

Unfortunately Samsung has not given many details about what the premium service will include, only that it will be ad-free and have “some exclusive features” for a price of $3.99 a month. What are those features? I guess we will have to wait to find out.

Samsung has not publicized a date for the new service to be available. Meanwhile if you own one of the the noted lucky Galaxy devices, you can download the app at the Google Play Store or with Samsung Apps.

UPDATE: I just received the following statement from Samsung:
“We’re continuously looking at ways we can enhance Milk Music with new
features to deliver the best radio-listening experience for our consumers.
We don¹t have additional information to share right now, but stay tuned.”
