Napster launching OTA music downloads in Japan

Napster L.L.C. said it will team with Tower Records Japan on its first over-the-air, full-track mobile music service.
NTT DoCoMo Inc. will be the first operator to market the mobile service, which will expand the Napster To Go offering beyond sideloading into on-the-go downloads. The service will be available free to Napster To Go subscribers, and over-the-air downloads will be bookmarked and added to users’ PC collections, integrating the two platforms.
“Launching our music subscription product on a wireless platform is a landmark for Napster and we are honored to be delivering this cutting-edge innovation with DoCoMo, one of the world’s largest and most innovative wireless carriers,” said Napster CEO Chris Gorog. “Napster’s mission is to provide consumers with unlimited access to the world’s music-any time and anywhere-and we are proud to announce this latest achievement with our joint venture partner Tower Records Japan.”
