Brits signed up to broadband will soon have the chance to enjoy unlimited music downloads completely legally after the launch of a new service.

MusicStation Next Generation from Omnifone is being targeted at broadband internet providers with the promise that their customers will have access to a huge library of tracks.

Omnifone has declared that it has contracts in place with four major labels, as well as independent imprints, meaning broadband users now have a legitimate alternative to illegally acquiring songs.

"MusicStation Next Generation gives consumers legitimate unlimited access to the world's music, in audio and video format, direct to their living room, through set-top box or personal computer, in partnership with their ISP or cable company," enthused Omnifone chief executive. Rob Lewis.

He went on: "Broadband providers can deliver a better music experience; a legal alternative to piracy that differentiates their consumer proposition."

Figures from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry estimate that music piracy accounted for 95 per cent of all tracks downloaded in 2008.
