Samsung Milk Music soon to feature ads, $4 ad-free option

That's what an infographic posted to Samsung's site seems to indicate, at least.

Samsung's Milk Music streaming service will soon feature ads, according to a new infographic posted Friday to the company's global blog.

Nestled towards the end of the infographic, Samsung makes mention of two options for Milk Music users -- a Basic Service that's "free to users with ads" and a Premium Service that's "ad-free and [comes with] some exclusive features." The Premium Service will set customers back $4 per month and be "available soon."

Samsung launched its Milk Music service last month. The streaming-music offering is powered by Slacker Radio and allows users to create stations and choose how much variety they want in their song selection. One of the more appealing aspects of Milk at its launch was that it was free and didn't contain ads, unlike Pandora, iTunes Radio, and many other free streaming-music services. It appears that will soon come to an end.

CNET has contacted Samsung for comment on the infographic and to see when the ad-free offer expires. We will update this story when we have more information.
