Wippit has added to its repertoire with 10,000 tracks licensed from BMG. Interestingly, the tracks will only be available to subscribers in the UK and Ireland for the time being. This could be seen as a stop gap until iTunes launches in the UK and Europe.
Wippit charge US$54 (UK£30) for unlimited downloads, and subscribers are allowed to swap tracks and burn them to CD. With the EMI deal we reported on earlier, Wippit now offer music from over 200 record labels.
Paul Myers, CEO and Founder of Wippit says, “We offer music from 200 great labels already and having BMG join us is fantastic for Wippit and music lovers alike. BMG have made available a wealth of world beating talent for Wippit subscribers to download, with an emphasis on quality.”
