Verizon Turns Up The Music

Verizon today announced the widely expected music service for their VCAST network. Over half a million songs are available at launch, growing to a million in a few months. The library includes artists from Warner, EMI, Universal, Sony/BMG plus indie artists from The Orchard. For 99 cents / song users can purchase music for your PC, which can then be transferred to your phone; a dual download to the phone and PC costs $1.99 for those who can't wait to hear a song. The over the air downloads use a new super efficient audio codec called Windows Media Audio Pro which preserves high quality sound in a smaller file size. Users can transfer any Windows Media Audio or MP3 file from their PC to the phone's storage card from Windows Media Player. The phone-based VCAST music integrates songs, ringtones, music videos and artist news. Live performances will also be offered as music videos. The first compatible phone will be an upgraded LG VX8100; additional VCAST music phones from Samsung and UT Starcom will be available soon, most likely the A930 and 8945. Customers with a LG VX8100 and Samsung A950 will be able to upgrade their handsets for compatibility with this service.
