Napster has added video to its unlimited over-the-air mobile subscription service in Japan. The new video service, Napster Clips, gives access to music videos to users of the N906iL onefone model handset from Japan’s NTT DoCoMo.
Napster Clips is a broadband video service that users can view from a full-size browser on NTT DoCoMo’s 3G network or via NTT DoCoMo’s “Home U” service. The first 20,000 applicants of the N906iL onefone handset customers also get a free “Comes With Napster Music and Video” 6-month subscription to Napster’s unlimited over the air Napster To Go audio and video music subscription service.
I would have sworn Napster was deadpool material given some other things I’ve read around the place but I was suprised to learn that the company has been quietly building up its partnerships as it seeks to build a business in a hypercompetitive vertical. NTT DoCoMo is Japan’s AT&T or Telstra so this sort of access should bide them well in one of the worlds most switch on nations.
