Streaming music service Rdio has teamed up with Canadian broadband provider Shaw to grow its subscriber base in the country, both companies announced Thursday. The partnership includes a strategic investment by Shaw as well as yet-unannounced “marketing, content and promotional” initiatives. Rdio recently struck a similar agreement with a big media group in Brazil, and teamed up with terrestrial radio network Cumulus in the U.S. last summer. Thursday’s release comes with the interesting tidbit that Canada is Rdio’s second-biggest market, with Brazil ranking third, and the company is apparently getting some traction in Australia and Mexico as well.
