HMV v. iTunes: HMV Digital opens in Canada

hmvHMV is continuing its attempt to take on iTunes, now launching its online music store, HMV Digital, in Canada.

HMVdigital.ca offers millions of tracks for download in MP3 format, free of DRM and playable on any digital media player equipped with MP3 support. Because it’s a Canadian site, it’s available in English and French.

The cross-platform service is accessed via a Web browser, and – unlike iTunes – lets users download previously purchased tracks for free in the event a collection is lost or damaged.
