Bellsouth, Napster to Share Tunes

Subscribers to BellSouth’s FastAccess DSL service may be interested to take note in a new deal their provider has signed with online music distribution service Napster. Free music and hardware are both part of the new joint offering.

The terms of the agreement, Napster said, will provide FastAccess customers will a free three-month subscription to the music service’s more than 1.5 million songs. As part of the package, listeners will also be given a flash-based MP3 player which is specifically designed to work with the Napster service without any future firmware upgrades.

Napster added that this deal is the first time they’ve teamed with a U.S. Internet service provider in such a way.
