Internet service provider Freeserve said today that it will launch an online music subscription service. Record labels such as BMG, Warner, Mushroom, Telstar, V2 and Ministry of Sound will all be getting in on the act.
Freeserve announced that the service will be rolled out later in the summer, and subscription packages will start from around £5.
The service will offer three subscription options. Genre will provide tracks from certain music styles available for a month which can be streamed or downloaded at any time.
A personal play list option will give customers access to the entire music collection along with a personal online library of music that is refreshed every month.
Permanent access will offer the full catalogue with the ability to download tracks to MP3 players or burn to CDs.
The company has climbed into bed with Microsoft to fulfil the offering, and all files will be encoded in the Windows Media Audio format and tagged with Microsoft's Digital Rights Management technology.
