Nokia will no longer offer their music flatrate, the company confirmed on Monday. Comes with music will be discontinued in 27 of 33 countries.
Since 2008 Nokia included a subscription to Ovi Music Unlimited to purchases of some of their phones, including a feature called ‘Comes With Music’, which allowed users to download an unlimited number of tracks from a catalogue of all 4 majors and many indie labels.
Comes With Music remains available in certain markets: Twelve-month subscriptions will be available to customers in China, India, and Indonesia, six-month subscriptions in Brazil, Turkey, and South Africa.
Customers who have already purchased a phone with the service, or purchase a phone shipped from manufacturers before the end of 2010, will have full access to Comes With Music until the subscription runs out.
Nokia has said these users will also still have access to any tracks they’ve downloaded after the subscription ends.
Will Nokia be at Midem btw?
