The Sound of Music at AOL

Two years after MusicNet (www.musicnet.com) launched with the backing
of Warner Music, among other record labels, sister company America Online Inc.
has launched the online music-subscription service on its online platform.

AOL subscribers can choose from three different MusicNet offerings: 20
streams and 20 downloads for $3.95 per month; unlimited streaming and
downloading for $8.95 per month; or unlimited streaming and downloading plus
burning of 10 songs each month for $17.95.

"MusicNet on AOL is a great addition to our already popular range of music
programming and products," AOL Entertainment senior vice president and general
manager Kevin Conroy said in a prepared statement, "and it provides another
great reason to upgrade to AOL Broadband."

Separately, AOL Music said it will use Savage Beast Technologies Inc.'s
software for a music-search and recommendation service.

And Sonic Solutions signed a deal with AOL allowing the Internet-service
provider to incorporate Sonic's CD-audio, CD-ROM and DVD-ROM burning
technologies.

Sonic would provide the CD burning capabilities afforded by the new MusicNet
service.
