Are you a Disklavier owner? Did you know about the Piano Radio subscription service available for your piano?

With Piano Radio, you can access more than 30 channels of streaming piano music on your Disklavier piano. Imagine your favorite artists across multiple genres performing in your home! With moving keys and real acoustic sound, Piano Radio brings your instrument to life and creates the perfect atmosphere. Plus, your Piano Radio subscription includes access to Disklavier TV programs featuring video content that plays in sync to your Disklavier! (Available in the USA only).

Today’s installment covers the procedure for subscribing to Piano Radio.

(Please note: The "Free Trial" option offers one channel with 30-second samples of each song selection and a Free channel of music classics). Once we’ve made our selection, we’ll be redirected to a product detail page for that subscription tier (below). In order to activate our subscription, we need to select our instrument. We’ll click on the red “Choose Instrument” button:
