Virgin Digital revamps in UK but closes US operation

Virgin%20DigitalVirgin Digital UK has revamped its music download service with the launch of a new online store. It has also closed its US-based site after signing a deal with online download service, Napster.

The UK site will continue to operate the download service as a standalone operation but it has relaunched to include new features such as a download rental club, music blog and online news service. It will also allow users to download an unlimited number of tracks and albums from a selection of over 2 million titles directly from the VirginDigital.com webpage, bypassing the need for additional software services such as iTunes, HMVDigital and Napster.
