Nokia adds Sony BMG to 'Comes With Music' plans

Nokia adds Sony BMG to 'Comes With Music' plans Nokia has announced a deal with Sony BMG, the world's second largest music label, to participate in their "Comes With Music" program, which is now expected to launch some time in the second half of this year instead of at mid-year as previously announced.
The plan is to offer unlimited music downloads from Nokia's online store for 12 months, with the option to extend that subscription after the first year. But perhaps the most important aspect of the program is that the files will still play after the first year if you decide not to renew your subscription. The music will be protected by Microsoft DRM.

Last year Nokia inked a similar deal with Universal Music Group, the world's number one label.

"We are quite confident that we will have all the labels at the table for Comes With Music. We are progressing in those negotiations," said Liz Schimel, head of Nokia's music business.
