Posted on Monday, September 05 2005 @ 3:41 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Both Virgin and HMW have unveiled digital music download servers that work with a subscription model, while also offering users the ability to buy songs.
The Virgin service will charge £9.99 a month if users just want to listen to tracks from the company's 1.2 million song library, £14.99 per month if they want to transfer tracks to an MP3 player, or 79p per track if they want to own the music.

HMV has not released pricing information but will launch the service later this year.
