ISP Will Launch Music Download Service to Deter File-Sharing
The rumors that BT plans to launch a not-for-profit music download service have been confirmed by the UK internet service provider. The company hopes through this service to make its customers quit the habit of using illegal file-sharing networks.
BT’s music service will follow the subscription model but no details regarding pricing have been revealed. Apparently, the company will keep the service free of charge for the first six to nine months and set o monthly fee after that period.
eWEEK Europe quoted BT in a recent article:
“We are very keen to launch a music service in the near future, but it will have to be with a model that customers will want and can work financially for BT. We are in the early development stage so we are not currently in a position to comment further.”
