EIRCOM HAS ANNOUNCED it is to discontinue its music streaming and download service, MusicHub, saying that the service is “not a core business activity”.

Eircom had offered the music service with the aim of giving users access to a catalogue of millions of songs which they could either stream or download.

Today, eircom said that any music customers have already downloaded will still be available to use outside MusicHub, but that playlists that users have created will not.

Eircom has said that no further subscription amounts will be take from their credit card after 30 June. A spokesperson for eircom confirmed that as MusicHub was a “value added service”, and not part of a bundle package, this change will not affect customers’ subscription agreements or contracts with eircom.

Customers should be aware that any download credits purchased must be used before 30 July, after which their balance will be cancelled.
