AT&T gets tunes from Napster

From mid November, US operator AT&T will make more than 5 million music tracks available to its subscribers via the Napster Mobile service.

AT&T wireless will be able to search the music catalogue, preview samples of each song and purchase and download the music from their wireless handsets in less than a minute.

Customers will have the ability to download five tracks a month with the Napster Mobile Five-Track Pack option at $7.49 or purchase songs a la carte for $1.99.

Napster Mobile will also feature joint delivery, sending a track to the user’s wireless handset while making a duplicate copy available for download to the user’s PC at no additional charge.

In addition to Napster Mobile, AT&T also announced two other music applications, MobiVJ, a streaming video service, and VIP Access, a mobile fan club and discovery service.

MobiVJ users will be able to stream MobiTV music video channels, from up to eight genres, directly to their handsets for $6.99 a month. With VIP Access, customers will be able to search artist biographies and discographies, sample new music, participate in polls and receive breaking alerts via text messaging services for $2.99 a month.
