Virgin Media has been forced to issue a statement about how swimmingly its plans for an unlimited music download service are going, following a report in New Media Age suggesting the UK ISP may be forced to drop the unlimited aspect. The report suggested that EMI was insisting on a cap on download allowances before signing up. “We are making good progress in developing the service and in addition to the deal that we have signed with Universal Music, we are currently in talks with both major and independent labels to launch a comprehensive service,” says a Virgin Media spokesperson. However, with no launch date confirmed, a 2010 is looking likely for the service. Source: Billboard
