The MSN Music service, located at http://music.msn.com or via Windows
Media Player 10, is primarily a digital download platform that provides
access to the latest releases and back catalogs from every major label.
Currently MSN Music offers more than 1 million titles across 20 genres
from over 3,000 labels. Digging into their catalog, you'll find releases
from Fatboy Slim, The Crystal Method, Faithless, Timo Maas, The Chemical Brothers and Felix Da Housecat. Most downloads from MSN Music are available for $.99 per track or $9.99 per album downloaded.
MSN Music is currently offering a promotion to all current and potential
members of their service. Purchase one song on the service and get five
free downloads to use as you will. You can also send the promotion to
your friends so they can try out the service and get five free songs
All you have to do is sign in to your existing MSN Music account or
create an account if you don't already have one, choose and purchase any song you want, and the five free songs will instantly be credited to
your account for use. The promotion ends July 10th 2005 and your free
download credits must be used by September 30, 2005, so you have plenty of time to browse around for what you're looking for.
