Today marks Rdio's 1-year public launch anniversary—it’s the day we opened our doors to absolutely everyone in the United States and Canada.
A lot happened in the past year: Rdio's catalog doubled with exciting additions like Warp Records, XL Recordings and Merge Records. We also launched a number of exciting new ways to use Rdio like Rdio for iPhone, Android, Sonos and Roku and desktop apps for Mac and Windows. Additionally, we released an API, affiliate program, integrated with Twitter in #NewTwitter's sidebar player, and relaunched our Help site and a gorgeous new blog redesign.
We have more in store for you, much more. To properly celebrate the occasion, we planned a week of awesome concert ticket givaways, have some 1-year Unlimited subscriptions to pass around and stocked up on swag that we want to send you. We also have special playlists from Influencers, Labels and the Rdio staff and some exciting announcements to make.
Over the next few days, you could win one of almost 30 ticket pairs from shows across the country. See bands like 311, Incubus, Of Montreal, Manchester Orchestra, Blue October, Death Cab for Cutie, The Get Up Kids, and Tapes N Tapes.
