Pressplay To Offer Unlimited Downloads: Pressplay, the major-label backed online music subscription service, will offer listeners access to an unlimited supply of music for a set period for a single fee.
Under one section of the new plan, subscribers will be able to download or stream an unlimited number of songs to their computer for a single annual fee of $179.40, the equivalent of today’s $14.95 monthly fee.
Customers will also be able to burn 120 songs a year to CDs after paying their annual fee. Packages that allow more songs to be burned will be available for individual purchase. Sources familiar with the plans said other new features will be added or expanded, including the offer of downloads that can be permanently downloaded and transferred to portable devices.
