Apple starts 'iTunes Pass'

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 24 Feb 2009 21:50

Apple starts 'iTunes Pass' Apple has launched a new service dubbed the iTunes Pass which will act as a 'season pass' for any artist they purchase, entitling you to music, videos, remixes and other content for the artist whose pass you purchase.
The 80's rock pop band Depeche Mode is the first artist with a Pass available and for $18.99 USD you receive 15 weeks worth of content, including two singles and their upcoming album "Sounds of the Universe."

All material will be downloaded automatically to your iTunes in iTunes Plus DRM-free format.

Apple Vice President Eddy Cue adds: “iTunes Pass is a great way for artists to give exclusive music and video, on their own schedule, directly to their fans. iTunes customers are going to love getting additional content directly from their favorite artists right when they make it available."
