EMI Music makes InMotion bid for air travellers

EMI Music has hitched a deal with InMotion under which the label’s music catalogue will be made available for sale at the latter firm’s airport-based kiosks across the US.

Music fans will be able to buy and download a selection of EMI Music’s key current and catalogue albums and singles directly to portable devices at major US airports using its in-store PlayPoint Media Hotspot kiosks. 

Fans will be able to preview and buy full albums and tracks and transfer them directly to a range of portable music devices, including iPods, to enjoy on their flights.
 
Beginning this month, 45 InMotion retailers located at more than 20 major US airports, including New York’s JFK, Los Angeles International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, and those in Miami, Atlanta Chicago, Dallas and more will feature current titles from artists ranging from Coldplay and Katy Perry to Al Green and Lady Antebellum.  A rotation of new and catalogue titles will be featured on an ongoing basis. 
 
InMotion will make albums available for $11.99.  Downloads will be available as DRM-free MP3s in high quality audio (256 kilobits per second).
 
“This is a great new opportunity for us to help connect the artists with fans,” said Eden Goldberg, VP of Marketing and Business Development at InMotion Entertainment.  “By offering a ‘fueling station’ for their portable devices, consumers now have an easy way to discover and buy new music they can enjoy on their travels.”
