Podcasts Spotify launched in the US today, to become the third serious provider after MOG and RDIO services that offer unlimited streaming of their catalog for a rather small-ish monthly fee. Napster, Real, ZunePass, Thumbplay (now sold away), also offer a similar service, but they never managed to capture the market the same way. I have used all three services above over the last year (some in a short trial mode, some through lengthy subscription), so here's how I see them go down.

Don't count out Rhapsody yet. They may not have the hype lately, but various sources still claim Rhapsody has the most subscribers in the US.

Last time I tried them, they had some gaping holes in their library, but that was admittedly a few years ago. I ran into the same problem with Zune.

I wish iTunes would come out with a streaming service, assuming they had their entire library available for streaming. Hell, I'd buy an iPod just for that.
