Pure offers free music download

Register your interest in music-streaming service to receive free track

Digital radio manufacturer Pure is giving away 10,000 free music downloads to web users that register their interest for its net-based music streaming service.

Pure Music, which was first unveiled in October this year and is set to go live this month. The service allows users to listen to 'millions' of tracks for a monthly fee of £4.99, thanks to the firm's deal with 7Digital, either from their internet-connected radios or through PCs with a net connection via Pure's online portal The Lounge or on a Google Android smartphone or Apple iPhone thanks to an app that allows smartphone owners to stream tracks whenever they're in range of a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. The Apple iPhone app can be downloaded from the iTunes app store for free now while the Android app is expected to be released soon.

The service builds on the FlowSongs service that was launched by Pure last year and allowed users of its Pure Flow or Sensia internet-connected digital radios to buy tracks and then listen to them via their device.

Playlists of tracks to be streamed can be created by simply dragging and dropping tracks. Furthermore, the playlists, which can be shared via Facebook and Twitter, are synchronised across all of the devices used to access the service.

Users will also benefit from Pure Tag, a function that allows users to bookmark tracks they hear on the radio and then find out about the artists and their back catalogue, or even discover similar artists.

To download a free track simply visit the dedicated Pure Music website and register your interest.
