Rogers launches DRM-free music downloads
Via Rogers' urMusic online music store or mobile web portalTORONTO -- Canadian mobile and cable giant Rogers Communications has introduced digital music downloads free of digital rights management (DRM).
Rogers has followed rival Telus Corp., which started offering music free of copy protection earlier this month.
The latest launch through Rogers' urMusic online music store or mobile web portal will enable subscribers to download and listen to digital music tracks across varied devices.
Rogers' DRM-free mp3s will cost from $0.69 to $1.29 per track, with full albums going for less than $10.
Canadians already download DRM-free music from iTunes or Amazon, but now can track purchases via their wireless phone bill.
Rogers' subscribers will also be able to order music albums ahead of their release date.
