Lets face it, when Spotify launched in the U.S. this summer, it really took Rdio out of the spotlight. But now Rdio is fighting back with a new free Access subscription plan. The on-demand music discovery service plans on offering free access to its music catalog – without advertising.

Rdio has a method to their madness, and that is that they are confident that by providing users an ad-free experience, they will see the value in becoming a paid subscriber.
The Rdio free access plan should be available soon.
