Nokia recently announced a new music streaming service for its Windows Phone-based Lumia range called Nokia Music+, and a local spokesperson for the Finnish phone maker has confirmed that South Africa will form part of the global Q1 2013 roll-out.

The South African pricing of the service hasn’t been confirmed yet, but Nokia said they expect it to be in-line with the $3.99/month pricing announced for the US market.

Nokia explained that Music+ does not replace its free Mix Radio service, but that it’s an “over-and-above” service that offers the following benefits:

  • Unlimited track skips (Mix Radio is limited to 6 consecutive skips);
  • Higher quality songs through increased bitrate of 192kbps (Mix Radio uses EAAC+ at 32kbps);
  • Unlimited offline playlists (Mix Radio limited to 4); and
  • A web app so you can stream playlists on PC an Mac.
