If you enjoy Last.fm on your 'iPhone, Android device, Logitech Squeezebox, Sonos system, Revo AXiS, Ikon, Domino or Heritage device, Roberts Stream 63i, 205, Colourstream and 83i radios, Teufel machine, Onkyo AV receiver and Denon and Marantz AV receivers' that's a kind of disappointing news because your Last.fm will now require a subscription service. But, if you are using it on Windows Phone 7 and Xbox that remains to be free. From the Last.fm blog Matthew Hawn, Last.fm's VP of products stated: 'On the Last.fm website an ad-supported, free-to-listeners model is what supports our online radio services in the US, UK and Germany. In other markets and on emerging mobile and home entertainment devices, it is not practical for us to deliver an ad supported radio experience, but instead, we will migrate to what we believe is the highest quality, lowest cost ad-free music service in the world.' Regarding WP7 and Xbox, Hawn mentioned that: 'Last.fm Radio will remain free on the Last.fm website in the US, UK and Germany and for the US and UK users of Xbox Live and Windows Mobile 7 phones (through 2011). We'll also continue to offer radio for free via the Last.fm desktop app.'
