Web portal Yahoo will offer a new service that allows consumers to listen to and download music.
Yahoo Digital lets Web surfers listen to music from popular recording artists and buy songs that can be downloaded and stored on a user’s hard drive. Users also can watch and listen to Internet broadcasts, such as concerts and music videos, and view on-demand video channels.
Company officials said in about a week, users will also be able to self-publish and sell their own music online.
The launch puts Yahoo in line with a number of its competitors in trying to attract music-hungry Net users, including America Online and Lycos.
