MSN UK has just launched a new music service that lets visitors download tracks from the web to their mobile phones. Mobile users need only point their phone’s browser to www.msn.co.uk and select the music service from the options. Tracks are available for download in three different formats: full track, music video, or RealTone (ringtones) and can be paid for either on the customer’s monthly bill from the network operator or pre-paid in sums of 1.50, £2 or £3 respectively.
The music catalog isn’t too bad either as major labels like Sony, EMI, and Warner are on board. There are currently 1 million tracks, 25,000 Realtones, and 10,000 music videos available.
Although MSN Mobile is already the largest commercial non-operator mobile portal, this move is sure to make the site even more popular among UK users.
Only one question: when can the rest of us have this service?
