Indian e-commerce site Flipkart would be launching its new digital music store as early as this month. Technology blog Woikr has just caught a glimpse of Flipkart’s to-be launched digital music service called Flyte. A new category called ‘Flyte Digital Store’ accidentally went live on Flipkart.com for a brief period of time, the report points out. The new feature which was taken down immediately is expected to be launched by Flipkart sometime soon.
Flipkart’s entry into the digital music space is expected, considering that the ecommerce company bought Mime360 – a digital media distribution company and also acquired rights to Chakpak’s digital catalogue last year.
Flyte is reported to provide users with legal music download offering DRM free mp3 downloads. Pluggd.in, further adds that the service will allow users to download songs for up to 5 times, including the first download, at the price of Rs. 10-15.
In his interview with Medianama, Flipkart’s co-founder Sachin Bansal had stated that the company is planning to roll out digital downloads service in 2012 and ‘Flyte’ could just be the one he was talking about. For, now just wait and keep our eyes open to more scoop on this.
