http://www.standaard.be/Artikel/Detail.aspx?artikelid=GTNNGA7R A well known internet provider in Belgium (Skynet.be) is closing its WMA music store and becoming the Belgian representative for iTunes. The current contract with British OD2 stops 31 march. By selling 1,5 million songs in 2005 Skynet is one of the biggest online music stores in Belgium but now prefers the more popular iTunes. From the article (my translation from Dutch to English that is) : "Skynet becomes the local platform of iTunes Belgium. Mid 2006 the purchased tunes are added to the monthly internet connection bill" So iTunes is now actively recruiting local stores to cooperate in there music business, Apple clearly isn't offering this to everybody but just selected partners witch is a good thing. Local artists are now also flocking to the store with new albums almost added daily probably fueled by Skynet. Is this a first?
