Microsoft is launching a music streaming service

Quote:
Microsoft is gearing up to launch a music streaming service similar to Spotify by the end of this month.
The service, which Microsoft aims to have ready by the end of July, will offer users the chance to stream music for free and also download to own.
Peter Bale, executive producer of MSN, Microsoft’s news and entertainment portal, told The Telegraph exclusively: “Music is an important area for Microsoft. We are looking at launching a music streaming service imminently.
It will be a similar principle to Spotify but we are still examining how the business model will work.”
Spotify users can stream music for free in exchange for listening to around a minute of advertising every half hour but for £9.99 a month, the ads will be turned off. It is thought Microsoft’s offering will be ad-supported too as well as having a paid-for premium service ...........

Good point.

MS, if you are reading this, just STOP while you are AHEAD. Or just refuse to sell in the EU until they stop being retarded.

I doubt they are going to do something dumb just because. I have a feeling they already know if they can do it or now.

But then again maybe not.

And the Welsh butchers shop that had to stop selling "Dragon Pork Sausages", because they contained no Dragon and the label was declared misleading!!
