EMI MUSIC and INMOTION ENTERTAINMENT have reached an agreement that will enable music fans to buy and download music directly to portable devices at major U.S. airports. INMOTION, the U.S.’s largest airport-based electronics and entertainment retailer, will now make a selection of EMI MUSIC's key current and catalog albums and singles available for consumers to sample, purchase and download directly from its in-store PLAYPOINT Media Hotspot kiosks.
Launching any day now, 45 INMOTION retailers in more than 20 major airports will let fans use PLAYPOINT’s touch screen stations to preview and buy full albums for $11.99 and tracks and transfer them directly to a range of portable music devices, including iPODS, to enjoy on their flights. Downloads will be available as DRM-free mp3s in high-quality audio.
