Play launches a new music download service

posted under by Philip Howlett
Finally, a company is starting to get it. We want to be able to download music without having to download some software to play it, we don't want any DRM, we want it in high quality, and we want it at a better price than iTunes offers. So, when I went on play today I was surprised to find this.

It seems that for 65p-70p you can download a 320kbps MP3, without DRM, directly through your Internet browser. That's 9p-14p cheaper than iTunes currently offers, and it's at almost twice the bit rate. More importantly, as it doesn't have DRM there aren't any restrictions on what you can do with the tracks. At the moment the library of tracks isn't quite up to the competition, but hopefully this will make apple get their act together.
