Ovi Music Unlimited coming to an end
On December 31 2010, Nokia stopped selling subscriptions to its Ovi Music Unlimited service in some countries, while the service continues in a number of others. Existing customers will have uninterrupted access to the music library until their subscriptions finish, will be able to keep their music downloads forever, and are still able to buy DRM free songs through the huge catalogue on the Ovi Music Store.

This is part of preparations to deliver new, innovative music experiences as part of Ovi during 2011. This comes in response to customer feedback and promises to deliver better, more locally relevant experiences. However, the new deals and other arrangements necessary for this to happen meant that old ones needed to be ended. More details on these new services will come soon.
