Music Download Kiosks In London Tube Stations





Came across this story on Engadget where it seems download kiosks are coming to London Tube stations. A company called Inspired Broadcast Networks is installing music vending machines in a couple of subway stations that will let you download music to your cellphone or MP3 player. Tracks will sell for £1 [$1.70] and each kiosk will offer two million songs with future locales including pubs, shops and gas stations. Compatibility and DRM issues abound, but it's a great idea and is already happening in #2 sales market Japan. Look to US labels to fight for years to stop this technology, complain about sales, then launch their own inferior "Now! That's What I Call Kiosk Downloading" with Clay Aiken as its spokeman.
