Ministry of Sound debuts CD-quality radio station on RealNetworks RadioPass

LONDON - The Ministry of Sound is expanding its online radio station through a partnership with RealNetworks, offering Radio Pass subscribers 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week continuous dance music.

The record label's online station will now be available as part of RadioPass, which provides subscribers with more than 80 stations of commercial free, pre-programmed radio, including more than 10 dance music stations and access to thousands of over-the-air and online radio stations.

A second, bonus, internet dance music radio station, created by Ministry of Sound, is offered purely for RadioPass subscribers. Fans are invited to sign up for a free 14-day trial of RadioPass on the Ministry of Sound website

Stuart Lewis-Smith, head of internet at Ministry of Sound, said: "This partnership with RealNetworks enables Ministry of Sound Radio to reach a new global audience through the RadioPass service.

"It also offers our existing listeners the opportunity to access their favourite radio station in crystal clear, CD-quality for the first time."

The radio station was launched in 2000 by Paul Oakenfold and broadcasts live from a studio at the Ministry of Sound's London nightclub.
