MusicAtlantic joins download market

MP3 players

And still they come. We reported last week about the new download service from Real, now another new provider, MusicAtlantic, is battling for a piece of the action.

MusicAtlantic is an offshoot of UK PC retailer MediaAtlantic. The company claims to be the first to offer legal music track downloads to the UK alongside the MP3 hardware. After placing your order for an MP3 music player, you can move onto MusicAtlantic to start downloading tracks in 192Kbps Windows Media Audio (WMA) format from a selection of over 200,000. There are no subscription fees and you can listen to snippets before you purchase.

Tracks are priced at 79p and albums start at £6.99. For more information visit
