MSN Music Box music-sharing site review

£6 monthly subscription

Manufacturer: MSN Music Box

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

Music Box allows you to listen to any of the two million-plus tracks in its database as many times as you like.

Music Box allows you to listen to any of the two million-plus tracks in its database as many times as you like. Like Napster, MSN Music Store operates as a subscription service. You can stream unlimited music for a monthly subscription of £6.

  • Listen to tracks as many times as you like with monthly subscription
  • Create and save playlists

As well as selecting songs or albums at the click of a button, you can create and save your own playlists. Tracks can be downloaded for 75p, but these come with DRM. Unlike Napster, Music Box offers no option for transferring tracks to a portable player.
