Napster price cut in battle with Spotify

Darren Allan

October 8, 2009

Music download service Napster has decided to cut the price of its “unlimited” package in an effort to compete with rival Spotify.

Napster users who plump for its unlimited deal, which gives full streaming access to 8 million or so tracks, will now pay £5 a month. That’s half the cost of Spotify’s premium service.

Napster is also throwing in five DRM-free downloads at no extra cost, making the offer quite a tempting one.

The downside in comparison to Spotify is that there’s no offline playback facilitated, and of course no option to listen free of charge (which Spotify offers with an ad-supported version).
