TORONTO — Napster is pulling out of Canada and warning its customers to use their credits and make backups of their purchased songs in the next few weeks.
Napster had been charging Canadians $9.95 a month for streaming access to millions of songs, or users could purchase tracks to keep.
Songs could also be stored on MP3 players — but not Apple devices — for $14.95 a month.
Napster says it stopped accepting new Canadian members last week and current members will lose their access on Dec. 16.
Napster Canada had been active for seven years.
Last month, it was announced that Napster was being acquired by U.S. streaming rival Rhapsody.
