You can download music from the Wal-Mart music store and start building your music collection on the cheap. Wal-Mart is the number retailer in the world, and they got that way by buying in bulk, and then selling at a huge discount rate to consumers. They have brought their business model online and now you can download music directly from the Wal-Mart website.
Currently singles are 88 cents each and you can still buy an entire album for about ten dollars. These files are legal music downloads from the best selling artist on various music charts.
Whether youíre looking for Country, Hip Hop, Pop, Rock or anything in between, you can find a single on the Wal-Mart web site. Their music store is very easy to navigate with all of the categories and top selling items listed on the right.
They also have a lot of compilations and collections. You can get some CD/DVD bundles which are the latest thing in the music world. Everyone from Ray Charles to Usher has recently released or re-released their CDs with so much additional content that itís a DVD release.
This is where you can get extended versions or remixes of popular songs, as well as clips from tours, clips of the bands and of course, music videos.
If you are going to download music from Wal-Mart, you will need a copy of their mp3 player software. You can see the link on the right hand side of the music store that says music downloads or 88 cents downloads. At this time, only PC users can use their mp3 players and buy digital music files directly from the site.
Also, since they are using their own music player you cannot import the tunes into the iPod. Right now, only music purchased through the iTunes store can be downloaded directly to the iPod. Itís weird but since thereís no universal format for mp3 players at this time, you have to use whatever player is support by a particular music retailer.
If you want to make your music portable, you can simply burn them onto a CD. Of course, they also have all the other excellent features you would expect from Wal-Mart, which is that they sell everything and at a great price.
Check back often as we continue to track the Wal-Mart music service. Hopefully theyíll partner with one of the commercial mp3 player companies in the near future and give you the opportunity to download your files to a portable mp3 player.
Overall, a great store with great musical selection. Very modern and up to date music catalog.
