Last.fm has introduced its premium subscription offering in an attempt to make enough money to cover demands from parent CBS and pay royalties to music publishers. The promise for the subscription model was that users of the service could stream more than three tracks in a row.

Starting on March 30th the premium service will cost €3 per month in all countries except the UK, US, and Germany. UK royalty collector PRS for Music says it is time the service started charging.

The service previously charged a paltry £1.50 per month that many considered a donation more than a subscription. Still, it will be interesting to see if the paid model eventually makes it to Germany, the UK, and the US.
