iTunes and Live Nation Team Up for Concert Downloads
Published Nov 24, 2009It's becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of all the major web-based companies and their partnerships. Besides the recent music services launched from Google and Facebook, O.G. digital music retailer iTunes has partnered with Live Nation to offer paid downloads of live concert footage.
According to a report from Reuters, the service will feature concerts from around 20 artists, including OK Go, Plain White T's and Ziggy Marley, with 100s more to come. Since they film most of the concerts they promote anyway, Live Nation will be able to provide the content at a low cost. Prices for the videos will start at $7.99.
With the new content, iTunes has also expanded their Live Music section with videos from the Killers, Kings of Leon and many others.
The Live Nation videos went live on iTunes in the U.S. today, with a Canadian launch likely on its way.
No word on if there will be any iTunes convenience fees.
