AOL teams up with Last.fm in Europe

AOL Radio is now going to be available in Europe through Last.fm, the free global music site.

Following on from a recent deal between AOL and CBS Radio in the US, the company has now opted to target Last.fm's 21 million global visitors.

The service is initially available in France, Germany and the UK with plans to roll out across Europe in the coming months.

AOL Radio users will be able to search for artists and
listen to a continuous stream of their music or tracks from similar artists.

And it also means that AOL Radio users in Germany and the UK can repeatedly listen to any track they hear via Last.fm's service.

Alongside the streamed music stations, AOL Radio listeners will have access to extra content including videos, pictures and event listings, as well as being able to chat to their fellow listeners.

This new deal means that AOL, Last.fm and CBS Radio now deliver the largest online listening audience in the world.
