Music drives the human soul to heights of creativity and inner peace. There is a rhythm to our lives and the discovery of music has helped many rediscover their own rhythms. Acquiring music through legal means in India is not very easy through online methods. It involves DRM protected files that cannot be played in your own devices except the one your downloaded it into. DRM or Digital Rights Management is a method of locking your purchased file such that it cannot be shared with others. A means to thwart piracy has in turn proved to be a hassle for legitimate customers.
Buying CDs and DVDs is more costly than directly downloading music as solid media format includes the cost for raw materials and packaging. This is where Flipkart comes in with its revolutionary digital music service called Flyte. The service does away with DRM restrictions and thus allows you to play your purchased music on any device that supports it. Flyte offers digital music for download in the MP3 format at bitrates ranging between 64kbps to 320 kbps, depending on the tracks chosen. The cost of downloading music through Flyte is quite low, starting from just 6 rupees for a track.
The process is made easier by incorporating the Flyte Download Manager that allows you to pause ongoing downloads for later, this comes in handy when you do not have constant uninterrupted internet connection. The software is available for both Windows and Mac machines. Flyte also allows you to download your purchased song 4 times. This feature also comes in handy when you have interruptions in your downloads due to network issues.
As a Flipkart initiative, Flyte has brought legal music files within reach of everyone with the music download service. The list of genres available range from Indian classical, pop and devotional music, to Rock music and popular bollywood releases. Flyte brings you some of the latest tracks as and when they release. Flipkart lets you choose the tracks according to the film, genre, or artist name, thereby giving you the freedom to go through the entire collection before making your choice. The easy to use Flyte Download Manager will help in organizing your downloads which is especially helpful if you wish to download whole albums at a time.
The payment currently involves online banking transactions and credit or debit cards which streamlines the whole online shopping process.
