Digital TV and broadband provider Sky has revealed details on its brand new online music download service.

Called Sky Songs, the platform will give all broadband consumers across the UK access to over four million tracks for either download or streaming.

People will either be able to sign up to one of two subscription deals to enjoy the service, or they are set to be given the chance to buy content on a per-track or per-album basis.

Sky broadband customers who access the site will also be able to download one free album worth £6.49 to celebrate the launch.

Mike Darcey, Sky's Chief Operating Officer, said the service would offer "an outstanding catalogue and unrivalled expertise" in content distribution.

He added: "Offering legal access to digital music is a vital step in combating illegal downloading."

Fibre-optic broadband provider Virgin Media is also set to launch a similar download and streaming service in the near future.
