The service will offer full-track music downloads to mobile handsets, access to multiple charts, the download of high-quality album art, and exclusive content.

The music service allows users who purchase music over the air to get their track delivered to their handset, and get a copy of their track online. They can then play it on their laptop or PC, transfer it onto an MP3 player, or burn it to CD. They can also purchase the track on their PC and then download it free of charge to their mobile. Also, in the event that a customer loses/deletes a track, they are able to re-download the track up to 3 times, free of charge (unlike iTunes).

3UK’s Marketing Director, Graeme Oxby says “3UK’s mobile music service powered by Groove Mobile will enable our customers to download music simultaneously from their phone to their PC and vice versa. It will bring online music purchasing for both home and mobile into one seamless experience. Once again this will demonstrate 3’s leadership in this market and give a fabulous experience for our customers.”
