Virgin To Close US & UK Download Stores October 19th

(Hypebot) NEW YORK – Hypebot reported that this would

happen months ago, but the end is finally near. Virgin will

shut its music subscription and download services in the

US and UK next month.

In the UK, (Virgin Digital) stopped selling tracks

last week and is no longer accepting new customers. Only

existing customers now use the service and the site will

shut down completely on Oct. 19th. U.S. customers will face

a similar fate but will get a credit to be used on

Napster’s music download service. No figures have been

released from Napster on conversion rates from Virgin or

the similar deal that it made with AOL.
