Nokia Adds Sony BMG To Music Service

  • April 23, 2008
Sony BMG Entertainment has joined Universal Music Group as the second major record label to offer music through Nokia's "Comes with Music" service. The initiative lets users buy a year's worth of unlimited downloads on certain Nokia devices. When the year is up, customers can keep the tracks without renewing their subscriptions.

Nokia is reportedly also in talks to add Warner Music Group's catalog to Comes with Music as it seeks to enlist all four major labels for the service set to formally launch in the second half of 2008. The music offering is viewed as Nokia's answer to Apple's dominant iTunes service.
