It was expected to launch by the end of 2009, but Virgin Media’s hybrid streaming and downloads music service will now not launch until the Summer, according to Marketing Magazine. It puts a name to the service: MusicFish, and says a July launch is most likely. However, what’s missing is any firm information about whether the planned top tier offering unlimited downloads is still part of the service, or has been scrapped due to resistance from the major labels (apart from UMG, which backed it at the original announcement). Virgin’s spokesman says merely that it’s “making good progress” with the service – a line that’s been stuck to rigorously for months now. Source: Marketing
