Sky has agreed a deal which will see music from the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys and Al Green added to its online download and streamlining service.

The broadband provider has teamed up with rights agency Merlin, which represents ten per cent of key global music markets, to gain access to a portfolio of record labels including Domino and Ministry of Sound.

Broadband users can access unlimited streaming and downloads on a subscription or a pay per-track or per-album basis through the service.

Justin Moodie, General Manager of Sky Songs, said the deal means "fantastic music" is available through the service.

He added: "We aim to constantly grow and improve the Sky Songs service and this addition is a welcome step in that direction."

Sky Songs was launched in October to offer broadband users a legal way to download and stream their favourite music.

Rival broadband provider Virgin Media is also planning to launch its own download service in the near future.
