Apple to sell iPods with unlimited access to music library
Apple may sell iPods and iPhones with unlimited access to its six million songs currently on the iTunes site.
The package – dubbed the ‘all you can eat’ deal – would cost £50 and is one of two flat fee options being considered by the US company.
The second option would be a monthly subscription of £3-£4 for unlimited access to iTunes. The package would last for the duration of the iPod of iPhone’s lifespan.
The current set-up sees customers pay for each download individually. Apple is now in talks with the big record labels over a revenue-sharing deal. One possible option is the companies would receive £30 from the purchase of each iPod of iPhone.
Although the scheme will appeal to many, it does mean that a 4GB iPod Nano would increase in price to £149.
