ISP music subscription services on the cards for 2011?

News: 7th January 2011 by Louise Dodgson under Media

In 2009 internet service provider Virgin Media announced its aims to launch a music service. Consumers would pay an additional subscription fee to Virgin Media then allowing the customer to download whatever music they liked, unlimited and DRM free; a service which could potentially have a massive effect on illegal downloading.

There was more talk about this towards the end of 2010 with knowledge that Virgin Media and Spotify were close to working out a deal together to provide a broadband ISP music subscription service. We all know that when it comes to digital developments the music industry has been very slow to act, but will the ISP music service ever become a reality?
