Virgin Digital retreats from music downloads

According to Beta News

Virgin is calling it quits in the digital music business. The company has stopped selling tracks and accepting new customers as of Friday, and will shut down for good on October 19. New sales of music will end September 29, according to a message on the UK portion of the site. Those customers who have a payment due before the shut off date will lose access the day their next payment is due, according to the note.

Wow – this is one market you would have expected Virgin to do well in, given its’ brand and usual demographic appeal.
