Silicon Valley Watcher - Former FT journalist Tom Foremski reporting from the intersection of technology and media

New music service at AOL

Posted by Richard Koman - August 29, 2006

AOL will debut today its new music service, AP reports, with 2.5 million audio tracks and thousands of music video for sale at the magic price point of 99 cents per song, $1.99 per video. (Aren't music videos actually advertising? Would you pay twice as much for a song that has the detriment of having a video track?)

The more interesting pricing option is a monthly fee of $9.95 for unlimited downloads, $14.95 for the ability to transfer to portable players. Does that include iPod?

The site should be live today at AOL Music Now.
