BMG Music Service

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

This one slipped by: the mail-order BMG Music Service closed its membership in March. The company would not comment on long-term plans to maintain or shut down the service. Surprisingly, existing members are still receiving information and (ostensibly) making purchases.

BMG was the last remaining music subscription service, having acquired Columbia house in 2005. Parent company Bertelsmann then sold the business to Direct Brands last year. The bmgmusic.com website directs people to a website called yourmusic.com, while columbiahouse.com still appears to be accepting new members.
