Skynet music joins iTunes

A major Belgian music retailer announced a partnership with Apple's iTunes Music Store, and will offer its customers 20 free iTunes downloads to help introduce them to the service. "From now on, Belgacom and Skynet will be offering their on-line music services via the iTunes Music Store, which means that they will be working with iTunes, the driving force behind the digital music revolution," Belgacom said. Belgacom's Skynet Music Club has been available in Belgium since 2002, and sold 1.5 million tracks online in 2005 alone. The new partnership has resulted in Skynet halting the sale of music packages, but existing customers have until the end of March of 2006 to use up leftover credit. Belgacom also unveiled plans to allow customers to pay for their iTunes purchases through an ordinary phone bill by the middle of the year, according to Macworld UK.

    Gegroet,

    Just a correction. Skynet is not a "music retailer". It's an ISP, part of belgacom, the ex-incumbant telecom-company of Belgium.

    Cheerio! Kr. Bonne.
