First Look: The new iTunes

0:44 /

iTunes is now DRM-Free; a three-tiered pricing system is coming soon; and you can purchase songs directly from your iPhone over the 3G network.

[ Background Music ] >> Brian Tong here with CNET.com, Mac World 2009. We're gonna do a first look at iTunes. Now, cosmetically, there's nothing new to show you but there are a few new features. Now first of all, you've been using the 99 cent tracks. In April they're actually gonna be going to 3 tiers, tracks from 69 cents, 99 cents and a dollar and 29 cents so the music labels are gonna determine that. Another thing about the iTunes Store that people have been waiting for is they will be entirely DRM-free so you can do whatever you want with those tracks and the final announcement is the fact that on your iPhone, if you wanted to buy music you can only do it if you're connected to WiFi, now you can do it whether you are on WiFi or 3G. So there's the first look at iTunes. I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com. ^M00:00:41 [ Music ]
