HP, Ominfone partner for European music service Hewlett-Packard has partnered up with Ominfone for a new venture that will distribute theMusicStation music service to new PCs sold in Europe.
The subscription service has 6.5 million tracks from the Big 4 labels and offers the music in WMA format, with DRM which kills the tracks if you ever stop paying the monthly fee.

Sixteen HP models will have the MusicStation Desktop service pre-loaded and for now the computers will be available with the service in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland.

As part of the deal, a free two-week trial comes included, and the service will cost 9 pounds per month in the UK, and 10 euro in the other countries.
