"Microsoft is introducing an initiative on Monday to promote emerging music acts across its entire digital footprint, Billboard has learned. Called Ignition, the program is designed to expose new artists and their music to consumers for an entire month by featuring exclusive content through Microsoft's multiple services -- including MSN, Xbox Live and Zune."
Exposure to new music and artists AND more free content for my Zune? Microsoft has started up a new program this week, Ignition, to promote new artists on the scene. What does this mean for you? More free downloads from Zune Marketplace! Hooray, I say. I usually try to download most of the free content I can get my hands on. Sure, 99% of the time, after a quick listen, it hits the recycle bin, but I have been able to discover a few new artists that I would have never known about otherwise. What about you? Do you give the free songs a listen?
