Circuit City And Napster Launching Digital Music Store

Troubled Circuit City is getting back into selling online music by teaming up with Napster on a new online MP3 service that will give consumers access to songs via monthly subscriptions as well as the choice of buying individual tracks. The company sold its MusicNow subscription service to AOL in November 2005. The latest venture begins April 29, when users can sign up for the service at Circuit City + Napster. The subscription service is $14.95 per month; new subscribers get the first month of access for free, along with five free downloads. The service will also charge 99 cents to purchase individual songs. As part of the purchase feature, users can get pre-paid download cards at retail and online in bundles of 15, 25 or 60 tracks.
