BBC Radio to Commence Sale of Concert Broadcast Downloads

BBC Radio 3 Sell Downloads Online Cover

The British Broadcasting Corporation has today announced they are set to commence offering for sale downloads from the public-service broadcaster's radio programmes – including classical concert from BBC Radio 3.

The announcement comes on the back of the successful launch of the BBC Store – a website where consumers are invited to buy, watch and retain copies of their favourite BBC television programmes.

The announcement has sparked some concern from a number of classical music labels, about the entry of a public sector rival into a market where physical and digital commercial recordings are already rapidly on the decline.
