Hi Guys, not sure if this has been discussed to death before, but was checking out Napster with a view to buying their "to go" package - then I saw their non UK deals!!
What's the game with Napster charges?
North America - $15 USD per month + a free MP3 player if you sign up.
Europe - 15 euros a month
UK - £15 GBP per month.
What marketing genius thought this was a good idea, or maybe Napster just figured most British are daft enough to spring for it?
Well I won't be giving (on principal) nearly twice what our US cousins pay - however I probably wouldn't mind paying the same.
What's the forum view - and anyone know if there is there a pressure group I can join?
(I can already feel an acorn of resistance to all things Napster, maybe with some further discussion, we might have a few saplings, and with enough interest maybe even a small forest of oak)
(I think the great british public would be interested in Napster worldwide pricing, then we can all make an informed decision on value for money. Goodness knows, with a fair pricing model they could massively increase their market share - I work with university students and this product is right up their street, just overpriced - a straw poll suggests that up to £2 per week seems ok, but the "to go" element is critical for their personal music - maybe a student card deal would go part of the way)
