A new service in Europe will offer an unlimited download monthly subscription service or the option to buy individual tracks or full albums. The service will be accessible through the Samsung Media Studio, the proprietary media player that ships with the company's K3, K9, and T9 model media players.
As for previous versions of the software, support will be added via automatic updates. The service will work with Samsung's PlaysForSure devices, based on Microsoft's Digital Rights Management (DRM) software. The service will cost about $20 per month on subscription, ot will cost $1.57 per track to buy.

Samsung said it would launch a "significant marketing plan" in the countries to promote the players and service soon, but no details were disclosed.
