The Sonos Multi-Room Music System is a unique multi-room music experience that keeps getting better over time with free software updates that connect music lovers to new content, features and more. Sonos now offers an unmatched suite of both subscription-based services like Napster(R) and free music services like Last.fm and Sonos Radio right out of the box. All of these services stream music directly from the Internet to the house so they work even when the computer is turned off - no need to download songs or have a server running.
Sonos now brings music from every corner of the world to every corner of the house with control from the palm of the hand, said Phil Abram, President COO, Sonos, Inc. By offering our customers a suite of free content with this update, we continue to provide even more ways to listen to the music they love, all over their home.

When you find what you want, simply add it to Favorite Stations for your future listening.
Last.fm on Sonos is a free global music service that lets you discover, play and share new songs and artists based on your unique musical tastes - right from any Sonos Controller. After an account is created on Last.fm, Sonos customers can enjoy continuous music streaming all over the house. Simply enter the name of a favourite artist or tag keywords and Last.fm's unique recommendation system instantly creates a personalised radio station featuring music you're sure to love.

Every song you listen to on Sonos - whether it's from your personal music library, a music service like Napster or Last.fm - is automatically added to your personal music profile. This allows Last.fm to customise your music recommendations and open the doors to even more music discovery, in more rooms of the house.
