e.Digital Launches WeDigMusic.com

10/1/2002 - e.Digital launched its new broadband entertainment Web site, WeDigMusic.com. Developed by e.Digitalís Broadband Entertainment Business Unit, WeDigMusic.com exemplifies the convergence of content with e.Digitalís portable players at the consumer level. WeDigMusic.com features music from thousands of musicians through e.Digitalís affiliations with leading high-profile content providers such as Pressplay, MP3.com, Liquid Audio, and EMusic.

As a special bonus, WeDigMusic.com provides streaming music for free using the WeDigRadio Internet radio service. Compatible with several desktop music applications, including Windows MediaTM Player and MusicmatchTM Jukebox, WeDigRadioís musical variety and constantly growing music catalog are sure to please.

"WeDigMusic.com provides consumers with a one-stop-shop for playing and downloading music from thousands of artists on the Web," said Bryan Jones, Vice President of Broadband Entertainment for e.Digital. "Subscribers to our site will be able to enjoy commercial-free Internet radio and download unlimited tracks."

For a limited time, music downloads are available for free. The site will later convert to an opt-in subscription service with unlimited downloads for only $10 a year; WeDigMusicís streaming tracks and WeDigRadio will remain free.

Jones continued, "All downloaded tracks are untethered, meaning they can easily and quickly be transferred to a portable audio player. As an added benefit, existing and future e.Digital consumer electronics customers will get a free one-year subscription to WeDigMusic.com so they can download tracks to their e.Digital-branded portable audio players. We view this as a way to increase exposure to our hardware players."

"WeDigMusic.com is defining the delivery of untethered digital entertainment to the consumer," said Jim Collier, President and COO of e.Digital. "We look forward to turning WeDigMusic.com into a comprehensive digital entertainment destination where subscribers and e.Digital consumers will be able to download music, e-Books, movies, and more to their e.Digital portable audio players."
