Former Nokia product, MixRadio is dead : Here’s why

Posted by Etoniru Chibueze

Sometime in 2007, Nokia launched a music streaming service called MixRadio. When Microsoft acquired their mobile division, the service was deemed surplus to requirements and was sold off to LINE – a free calls and messaging provider. The new owners have just killed off the service, see the reason why below:


LINE agreed to acquire the business and assets making up the music service known as MixRadio from Microsoft Mobile OY in December 2014. The newly established company continued to provide a radio-style music streaming service intended to provide a broader user experience. Nevertheless, after a careful assessment of the subsidiary’s overall performance, the financial challenges posed by the music streaming market, and priorities of LINE Corporation, LINE has determined that future growth would be difficult to ensure and decided to discontinue the MixRadio music streaming service.

If you’re an existing user of MixRadio, then it’s probably time to look elsewhere.

  1. This is disappointing. I’ve used MixRadio when it was with Nokia, and I suspected Line would eventually kill it off once it got ownership.

    Even more annoying, it never worked on my Tecno phone because it wasn’t available for my region ?

    I’ve moved on. It was nice knowing you MixRadio.
