Flyte – a nice digital music download store from Flipkart

Flipkart has launched its own music download market yesterday called Flyte. It is offering DRM free music on multiple languages at prices starting at Rs.6 for a song and Rs.25 for an album.

Members may be interested in visiting its “Hindustani” Classical collection page. The Bengali classical collection is quite pitiful in its selections and classifications (e.g., “Crosswinds” listed as Bengali classical!) 😀

Hope their errors will reduce and offers will grow with time.
