HMV to Starts Subscription Music Service in U.K.: Music retailer HMV Group is expected to announce this week the launch of a subscription digital music: this is the first U.K.music retail chain to move into the online subscription services.

The retailer will team with On Demand Distribution (OD2), a British technology firm co-founded by recording artist Peter Gabriel, to make nearly 100,000 tracks available to British users of its site. Users will pay a monthly subscription of $7.59 entitling them to a certain number of playbacks. They can also download the music to their computer hard drives or personal listening devices.
