Amazon to begin international rollout of Amazon MP3 in 2008
Posted on 28-Jan-2008 07:30 | Tags Filed under: News



Amazon.com is planning to begin an international rollout of Amazon MP3, Amazon's DRM-free MP3 digital music store still in 2008.

Songs purchased from Amazon MP3 are playable on virtually any digital music-capable device, including the PC, Mac, iPod, Zune, Zen, iPhone, RAZR, and BlackBerry.

Amazon MP3 is the only retailer to offer customers DRM-free MP3s from all four major music labels as well as over 33,000 independent labels.

"We have received thousands of e-mails from Amazon customers around the world asking us when we will make Amazon MP3 available outside of the U.S. They can't wait to choose from the biggest selection of high-quality, low-priced DRM-free MP3 music downloads which play on virtually any music device they own today or will own in the future," said Bill Carr, Amazon.com Vice President of Digital Music. "We are excited to tell those customers today that Amazon MP3 is going international this year."

Launched on Amazon.com in September 2007, Amazon MP3 offers a large selection of a la carte DRM-free MP3 music downloads, which now includes over 3.3 million songs from more than 270,000 artists.

Every song and album in the Amazon MP3 music download store is available exclusively in the MP3 format without digital rights management (DRM) software and is encoded at 256 kbps to deliver high audio quality.

Most songs available on Amazon MP3 are priced from 89 cents to 99 cents, with more than 1 million of the over 3.3 million songs priced at 89 cents. The top 100 bestselling songs are 89 cents, unless marked otherwise.

The company is not disclosing a specific launch timeline for individual Amazon international websites.
