The Financial Times reported last March that Apple was in the midst of lining studios up for an unlimited subscription plan to offer iTunes customers at a flat rate.  Jordan Golson at the Industry Standard is reporting that numerous websites have been receiving word that this is set to go down soon, with half of the currently available iTunes library at subscriber’s disposal.

 

The subscription will be for one-year and be available through iTunes or a retail box, similar to how MobileMe/DotMac is sold. The subscription would cost $129.99 on its own, $179.99 with MobileMe or $99.99 for existing MobileMe subscribers. The site claims a late September announcement with late October rollout, just in time for the holiday season.

We know there will be an iPod event next month.  What better time to announce the service?  Would any of you be interested in this type of service to go along with MobileMe?  It might just fit into the master plan.
