Napster To Go Service Launches
Last month we told you about Napster’s newest idea for renting music instead of paying 99 cents a track. We informed you that the service, at $14.99, was being beta tested. The service is now available on Napster’s To Go website. The only drawback is that only a few portable MP3 players work with the service. The current list of To Go compatible players include the iriver H10, Creative Zen Micro, SMT5600 Smart Phone, Zen Portable Media Center, Gateway GCM-4 Photo Jukebox, iriver H320, iriver PMC-120, and the Samsung YH-999 Portable Media Center. More compatible players are sure to be released, just look for the “Works with Napster To Go” logo. Of course, the Apple iPod is not supported. Will that make it harder for Napster to compete with iTunes? This seems to be a good service since you are able to have unlimited downloads for $15 a month. Say you download 1,000 songs, instead of paying $1,000 using iTunes, you only spend $15 a month. A very completive price, however, could the incompatibility of the iPod be this service’s downfall?
