Napster Joins The Party With XM and Samsung

Reuters: We reported yesterday that XM Radio and Samsung will soon introduce a satellite radio receiver and digital music player that will let XM subscribers buy and download songs through an exclusive arrangement with an online music store...Today, Napster has announced that it is the online music store of choice and the new service will be called "XM+Napster."

XM and Napster said they plan to launch the online service in the fourth quarter of 2005 (in conjunction with the availability of Samsung's new XM/MP3 players that let users bookmark songs they hear while listening to the radio for future purchases online) that enables XM's 4.4 million subscribers to buy music they hear on the paid XM radio service. After the MP3 player is connected to a PC, the service will match the marked XM titles with songs in Napster's catalog so that they can be easily purchased...
