Default The Zune Pass is in big trouble now, here why!

Unlimited iTunes Subscriptions?
Apple to offer unlimited iTunes purchases for a monthly fee, reports suggest.

When it comes to digital distribution, iTunes has shaped one of the most successful business models in the home entertainment industry, with over 10 billion songs and 2 million movies sold, as well as over 3 billion apps downloaded. Since it began, the service has been based in per-item purchases, but now it seems Apple may be considering an alternative, subscription-based model for iTunes.

According to New York Post, Apple is in talks with major music labels in regards to a new subscription-based pricing structure for iTunes that would allow unlimited access for a monthly fee. Pricing for the new service could be broken down into tiers, ranging between $10 and $15, though what limits would be imposed on each remains unknown.

The talks involved iTunes executive Eddy Cue, and may have been as recent as a few weeks ago, says the New York Post. The negotiations are also believed to be the result of slumping song downloads, which have been surpassed by purchases of whole albums.

Apple just kill the Zune & the Zune Pass for good. the Zune did put a good fight but Apple always had the upper hand because of the Ad's but Microsoft was lazy with the Ad's & now they are paying the price.
