RealNetworks launches RealMusic

By Derek Sooman on December 15, 2005, 2:27 PM
RealNetworks has launched a music and video Internet broadcast service called RealMusic, which will feature services such as music downloads, ringtones and a range of user-generated content, whilst providing a natural evolution from the company’s earlier offering, RadioPass. Some 300 channels are available, with music mixed by Real's global team of music editors. There is a range of free stations to choose from, in addition to a £8.50 a month premium service.

The download service prices individual tracks at 99p - more than the iTunes 79p standard - and albums at £7.99 a pop, which is more reasonable. But there are no tools for synchronising your downloads with mp3 players and other devices.

TonePass, giving access to the ringtone service, costs £4.99 a month.
