Napster gives away music players with subscription

If you like Roxio's digital media player and Napster then you're in luck. With a one-year subscription you can get a Rio Chiba Sport or 1.5GB Rio Nitrus.

Roxio Inc.'s Napster said on Wednesday it is offering free digital music players with a one-year subscription in the latest bid by an online music service to lure consumers with promotional offers. Napster, which was transformed into a legal service after turning the music industry on its ear with an unauthorized song-swapping platform, is now giving away MP3 devices to anyone who subscribes for a full year.

On its Web site, Napster said it would give consumers a Rio Chiba Sport portable music device, valued at about $130, if they sign up for the subscription, which is valued at $119.40. The device features 128 megabytes of storage capacity and includes a stopwatch, sports headphones and an armband. Napster's Web site also said consumers can upgrade to a larger capacity Rio Nitrus by paying an additional $80. The Napster offer marks the latest example of cross-promotions among competing online music services.
