The supermarket isn’t exactly where most of us would think to buy our digital music, but Tesco thinks it can change that. Tesco has announced it intends to attempt to compete with iTunes by offering a music and film download service.
Tesco says that more than 3.3 million songs will be available to download from its website and 1.6 million will be playable on most any device thanks to no DRM. Tesco’s current download service doesn’t allow tracks to be sent to a MP3 player.
Times Online reports that all major music labels are supposed to be involved. No pricing information has been announced yet, but Tesco says it will be competitively priced. The tracks better be cheaper than iTunes if they want the service to catch on.
