Napster expands to Germany Napster has expanded its music downloading service to the German market, the company announced on Thursday. This will be the first music subscription service to the available in the country. The company struck deals with major labels in Germany as well as 150 independents, allowing it to offer a catalog of 1.5 million tracks. Over 20,000 German albums and 135,000 local acts are included.
The Subscription service is available for 9.95 per month, or the Napster to Go service is available for 14.95 per month. Tracks can also be purchased for 99c per track or 9.99 per album. Music subscription services basically allow users to "rent" music files. As soon as they stop paying the monthly subscription, they can no longer listen to the music. The Napster to Go service also allows music to be stored on compatible portable players.

Still not as big as iTunes though. And I hate the fact that Napster music is encoded into the WMA format. WMA sounds awful.
