A Sprint executive today said the carrier is looking at a number of options to expand its music services. Sprint expects to link the Sirius satellite channels users can already subscribe to to the music store. If a user hears a song he likes while listening to a satellite channel, he will be able to click a button to buy that song and have it downloaded to his handset and desktop account. Sprint is also hoping to add a subscription service to its music store. Like Napster or Yahoo!, this would allow subscribers access to unlimited music for as long as they pay a monthly fee. Sprint is still working out details such as when this service could launch or how much it will cost.

they always will do well with content... just remember that.
Personally, I think Sprint sucks the big ones. I have never like the customer service, nor the service of Sprint. I did always like the phones and content, just not the crap that came with it.

I do agree that this is a positive direction, aimed t...

I love how everyone blasted VZW for doing this when the Vcast music service launched, but now that Sprint is finally catching up, You guys are singing their praises!!!!

It must suck to be under contract with a company that is sucking hind tit in the Cellular world!

Let's just face it, Sprint sucks, just like those phone crippling bastards Verizon.

What in the world are you talking about?

Sprint's Music Store came out before VZW's....geez. 🙄 Notice what the title of this article is: "Sprint Considering MORE MUSIC OPTIONS". They will be adding onto the existing Music Store.
