Napster goes back to its roots

Posted on Monday, May 01 2006 @ 20:32 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Napster unveiled a new ad-supported music download service to combat Apple iTunes. The new service enables users to listen to 2 million of songs online, you only need to sign up and you can start listening.

But there is a catch. You can only listen five times to each song, after that you have to pay 99 cents to buy the song or sign up for a monthly subscription.

Napster's CEO Chris Gorog claims this is the closest they have ever come to the original vision of the Napster music download service that conquered the world in 1999.

One of the company's goals is to promote their subscription service which enables users to listed to an unlimited amount of songs for only $9.95 a month.

Head over to Napster if you want to start a 7-day free trial of their subscription-based music download service.
