[Yahoo! Music integrated with new Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge (WMB54G) for easy wireless streaming of music directly to a home theatre system from a computer.]

Irvine & Santa Monica, CA -- Linksys, a Division of Cisco Systems, Inc., and Yahoo! Music, today announced an agreement focused on making it easier for consumers to move digital music legally from their computer to other devices around their home. The agreement enables Linksys and Yahoo! to work together to develop ways to enhance the customers' Yahoo! Music and wireless home networking experience. The integration of Yahoo! Music with the Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge (WMB54G) is the first product resulting from this relationship.

Linksys and Yahoo! have developed a new plug-in for the Yahoo! Music Engine to work directly with the Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge. This plug-in is integrated into both the Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge and the Yahoo! Music Engine so users can stream music directly to a home stereo with the click of a button on the Yahoo! Music Engine interface. The free Yahoo! Music Engine provides users the ability to play and save songs, share music using Yahoo! Messenger, transfer music to compatible portable devices, access pre-programmed radio stations, burn CDs, create playlists and more. With the addition of the Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscription service, Yahoo! Music Engine users can build music libraries from a catalog of over a million songs, access personalized music recommendations, and over 100 customizable and commercial free radio stations.

Pricing and Availability

The WMB54G is available from retail, e-commerce and direct response at an Estimated Street Price (ESP) of $99.99. The free Yahoo! Music Engine music management software and Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscription service can be accessed from Yahoo! Music Unlimited provides music fans with music listening and management functionality for $4.99 per month for an annual subscription or $6.99 for a monthly subscription.

Yahoo! will also be providing a $20 rebate on the Wireless-G Music Bridge when users sign up for a one year subscription to Yahoo! Music Unlimited.

Wireless-G Music Bridge:

The Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge lets users wirelessly stream Yahoo! Music services and other music stored on your PC to your Home Entertainment Center, without running cables through the house. Using a wireless connection, the Music Bridge finally frees your digital music collection from those little computer speakers to play in full glory through your stereo or surround sound system

The Wireless-G Music Bridge sits by your home stereo and connects to it using standard consumer electronic cables. It also connects to your home network by Wireless-G wireless networking, or via standard 10/100 Ethernet cabling. The included software creates a virtual sound system in your PC, which sends the Yahoo! Music audio output to the Music Bridge and the stereo system.
