BT taking on iPod, iTunes

UK Telecom giant BT is for a share of the multi-billion dollar music download market, according to The Observer: "It will launch a new service tomorrow enabling mobile phone users to listen to 50 radio stations over their handsets, and download tracks for a small fee. The initiative, in partnership with radio group UBC Media, is one of the most ambitious since BT re-entered the mobile market. Users will also be able to pause, rewind and record live radio shows. BT Livetime will be launched tomorrow as a pilot with Virgin Mobile but it is likely to be extended to other networks. Other services will include music videos and live TV news and sports coverage, for which BT has already signed deals with Sky News and Sky Sports News."
