UK UBC radio to trial music downloads over the air via DAB
Posted by SeŠn Byrne on 26 June 2006 - 16:40 - Source: The Register - Hardware

Until now, music download services have operated over the Internet as well over the mobile phone network. In the UK, one of the UK's largest independent radio production companies, UBC Media Group has launched a trial the first music download service that will work over the air via Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB).

While a song is being played via UBC's service, an encrypted stream copy of the track is transmitted at the same time, which a compatible DAB receiver will store for a limited time. Should the consumer decide to purchase this song, the track will be decrypted, stored to keep and become immediately available for playback. At the same time, the customer will also be able to access a DRM-crippled copy for download from their online website.

The songs cost a fair bit more than iTunes at £1.25
