According to the Register, rather like Spotify, record companies and artists will receive revenue for airplay. And they’ll also get greenbacks when customers fail to use up their monthly quota of downloads.

One sticking point in attracting take-up, however, could be the pricing. A payment of £4.99 will get you just five songs per month. That’s not a great deal compared with some out there. But other offers are more keenly priced. £11.99 per month, for instance, gets you 20 downloads.

Whether the service is a success or not, it’s interesting to see ISPs forging closer links with music companies. Perhaps with a bit more dialogue between the two parties, they might find they don’t get on so badly after all.
