Microsoft, OD2 launch European digital music store

Microsoft has announced a partnership with OD2 to form Europe’s first major a la carte online music service, reports Reuters. “Beginning today, music fans with Microsoft’s Windows Media Player version 9 can purchase individual music tracks for 0.99 euros or 75 pence from OD2’s library of over 200,000 songs. The move marks the first time European consumers can purchase song downloads off the Internet for under one euro (US$1.13), and without requiring a monthly subscription, bringing the fee in line with the popular Apple Computer iTunes service, which is not yet available in Europe.”
