Digital music on demand is coming to a store near you soon.
Alliance Entertainment, one of the biggest distributors of compact disks and video cassettes, has snapped up Digital on-Demand to push the concept into stores globally.
Digital on-Demand is already wiring music stores in the US to enable consumers to download and create CDs not stocked on the shelves over a high-speed network. The burned CDs come complete with lyric notes and cover art.
Alliance has deals with Sony Music Entertainment and the EMI Group to use their back catalogues to sell tracks on demand.
Virgin Megastore, Wherehouse Music and Trans World Entertainment are among the music stores which have already signed deals to have Digital on-Demand computer kiosks installed.
