Verizon Wireless, Real Networks’ Rhapsody and MTV Networks today announced the launch of V CAST Music with Rhapsody service, to deliver “unlimited monthly access to music on up to three Rhapsody-compatible mobile phones and players and online on multiple PCs and Web browsers, for about the cost of a single CD.”
The monthly subscription cost $14.99 and provides users with unlimited access to Rhapsody’s 5 million songs. Individual song purchases are also an option — for PC downloads, a single song could be yours for 99 cents, while OTA music purchase cost $1.99, but also includes a complementary DRM-free master copy file which users can download from their PCs.
V CAST Music with Rhapsody works on V CAST-compatible phones such as LG Decoy, LG Dare, MOTO W755, Samsung SCH-u550, Samsung Glyde and Samsung Juke. Customers using the MOTORIZRTM Z6tv, MOTORAZR2 V9m or LG VX8700 may bring their phones into a Verizon store to receive a free software upgrade on their phones to access the service.
