Napster Offers Free, Ad-Supported Music

One would suppose the chance to listen to any music of one's choice for free might be a good thing. It certainly was (and still is) in the world of file sharing but the granddaddy of it all, Napster, is now offering free, ad-supported music. Yup. On the music service's site, 15 second video ads will be shown before listeners hear their selected tune. Up to five plays of 2 million songs can be heard for free. Then, the song can either be purchased for 99 cents of the visitor can subscribe to Napster's subscription service.

There's another service around that offers free ad-supported music. It's called the RADIO.

Yes, but the radio isn't quite as on-demand as this ;) I think it's a creative idea by Napster and a way to draw interest away from iTunes when you are thinking of buying a song!
