Lady Gaga tracks streamed free in Ireland

U2, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga's songs have been made available to stream for free to eircom customers in Ireland

U2, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga's songs have been made available for free in Ireland.

Customers of broadband provider eircom will be allowed to stream nearly four million tracks from their MusicHub for free and without adverts or restrictions.

The MusicHub service also makes downloads available at a competitive price and can also be accessed and used by non-eircom customers who have a fixed broadband internet connection for a fee.

The service was launched by Irish singer Imelda May and Stephen Beynon, Group Managing Director of Consumer and Small Business at eircom.

He said: "We are the first and only Internet provider in Ireland to offer online streaming as part of a music service.

"Customers will not find a greater selection of music across all genres anywhere else in Ireland from their broadband provider."

The service has been brought about after eircom struck deals with each of the major record labels including Universal Music UK, Sony, EMI, Warner Music as well as Merlin, a global rights body representing thousands of independent labels.

The service lets users download Digitally Rights Managed free music to their computer and MP3 players which they can keep even if they leave the service.

Packages enabling users to download music start at 5.99 Euros a month, which allows customers to download 15 tracks a month.


The legendary Irish rock group – comprised of Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr – perform a number of shows as part of the eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE tour.
