MusicMatch Jukebox is one of the most popular and well known all-in-one audio applications. It has been available for years and has always been attracting a good number of newbies.
According to the source MusicMatch is now implementing pay-per-download music purchasing features to their services, much like the Apple iTunes. The iTunes has been a great success and many companies are now adopting the same business model to their services. The supply is quickly increasing, so now the question is that how big actually is the demand?
MusicMatch, which already offers a subscription-based service, the $7-a-month MusicMatch MX, said it has struck deals with nine big-name labels to offer a casual purchase-oriented download service for Windows PCs.TheRegister.co.uk
Among the labels are 'big five' players EMI, Universal and BMG, but both Warner and Sony are notable by their absence, which automatically puts MusicMatch's service at a disadvantage to both Apple and BuyMusic.
MusicMatch didn't reveal much in the way of details about the service, so it's going to be interesting to see if they offer the same sub-licensing terms that BuyMusic offers.
