EMI Reportedly Developing Direct To Consumer Online Music Store
EMI is reportedly hard at work developing a direct-to-consumer music service. The online destination is slated to launch by the end of the year.
The service may live on EMI.com, which is dedicated to a mix of corporate and artist news. The music service will feature a mixture of paid and free content and also might include non-EMI artists as well.
EMI is positioning the effort, which was first reported Wednesday in the Financial Times, as an experimental “consumer lab” with music discovery functionality.
