Omnifone, an independent provider of unlimited music services globally, has announced a partnership with HP to distribute the MusicStation Desktop unlimited music service on over sixteen HP models across ten European countries. The service will provide unlimited access to millions of tracks from all four major music labels and independent labels, and will be preloaded on the entire range of new HP Pavilion, Compaq Presario and HP Envy models, featuring up to fouteen days free trial of unlimited music access for every purchaser of HP PCs.

MusicStation enables users of new HP PCs in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland to legitimately download, play and share millions of tracks on their computer for a small monthly subscription.

Tracks are downloaded directly to the user's PC over the internet for both online and offline playback when subscribed to the service or in the free trial period. MusicStation subscribers can also download and keep their favourite 10 tracks forever in DRM free MP3 file format each month.

The new service is fully licensed by Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, EMI Music and Warner Music International.

"Universal is working closely with PC manufacturers to support the introduction of legitimate music access across mainstream connected consumer electronics," said Rob Wells, Senior Vice President, Digital, Universal Music Group International. "With its huge scale and user base, HP's 10 country introduction of Omnifone's MusicStation unlimited music service for the PC will help encourage legitimate access to digital music content from Universal Music and all the other major and independent labels."

Prices vary from GBP8.99 in the UK, EUR9.99 (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain), CHF14.95 in Switzerland and 99SEK in Sweden.
