BBC launches ad supported online music


by David Allen

Music fans will be in for a treat when BBC Worldwide launch their ad supported, online music store, where both free and paid for music content will be available from the vast archives of the BBC.

Over the years the BBC has produced some of the most groundbreaking music programmes, such as
Top of the Pops and the Old Grey Whistle Test, not to mention the amount of concerts and festivals that have been screened on the BBC channels.

Initially there will be around a thousand tracks, but the aim is to offer around fifty thousand music tracks and three thousand hours of music video, making good use of the content built up over a long period of time.

Although there are no prices set out yet, they will probably be in line with the other online music services, which is around 79p.

However, the BBC will also be providing streaming, in which case there will be no cost.
