Another one bites the dust: Virgin kills its online music store

Virgin DigitalWhile competition continues to heat up in the online video space, it appears the online music space is getting smaller and smaller. Just weeks after Sony announced it was closing its online music store, Virgin is shutting down its Virgin Digital web site.

Virgin Digital offers users the chance to download songs a la carte or subscribe for content a la Napster/Rhapsody. The service, which was only available to users in the US and UK will officially shut down on October 19th, although Virgin Digital has already stopped accepting new customer registrations.

Anyone with more than a month of subscription credit will get a refund. If you've got credit for song downloads, there won't be a refund, so it's time to start a downloading binge or you can use your credit on Napster.
