Now you can squeeze even more musical goodness out of your Logitech Squeezebox.
The Wi-Fi audio system, which lets you stream music to any room in your house in a variety of 802.11g-supported offerings, announced that it has added MP3 file-sharing pioneer Napster as a content provider.
Of course, Napster has been legit for years now with a subscription-based streaming audio service. Depending on your tastes and plans, you may already have Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius XM or other web radio stations already streaming to through your Squeezebox system in addition to your own digital music collection.
Adding Napster opens up your musical options with stuff like thousands of handpicked playlists, 50 radio channels, more than 20,000 shows, personalized channels based on your listening habits, Billboard chart-toppers and more.
You can check out Napster on a 30-day trial basis to see if it meets your needs or if you want to play around with Automix music discovery tool.
