TELUS becomes first carrier to offer OTA DRM-free music

Many people say that music is freedom and sounds like TELUS is making the right moves. Today TELUS announced they are the first carrier in Canada to offer over-the-air DRM-free (digital rights management) music tracks. So what this means is that you can buy music from TELUS’ music store and then transfer it to whatever electronic device you want, such as cellphones/smartphones, computers etc…

Songs are available from either $0.69, $0.99 or up to $1.29 (bit cheaper than iTunes). TELUS also states that “Current TELUS Music shop users can also enjoy the benefits of DRM-free music by easily upgrading eligible DRM music files they already have in their collections. The upgrade can be done through the TELUS media player or via any DRM-free capable handset for $0.30 per track.”

David Neale, TELUS’ Chief Futurist said “TELUS is the first carrier in Canada offering true freedom of choice to all music lovers in Canada. The availability of DRM-free music from TELUS means our clients can now easily move their music between their devices for a simpler, seamless experience. Today’s announcement demonstrates our ongoing commitment to making music available any time, anywhere, and ensures a superior customer experience for TELUS customers.”
