BMG Music Service is being discontinued

I just got the following today and it doesnt shock me as more people buy digital but it still is sad.

Dear Music Lover,

We’d like to tell you about some upcoming changes to your membership.

BMG Music Service is being discontinued as of June 30, 2009.
That doesn’t mean your music savings are coming to an end. Your savings can continue with our other service, yourmusic.com, where shipping is always free and there are no automatic shipments.

Here’s some important information regarding your current account:

  • You will receive one more Featured Selection Announcement email from us.
  • You will still be able to shop at bmgmusic.com through May 31, 2009.
  • We have discontinued our Music Points program, effective January 31, 2009. You will be able to redeem your outstanding music points through April 30, 2009.
  • You’ll have through May 31, 2009 to redeem certificates or free CDs you’ve earned.

Remember, you can still shop online at bmgmusic.com and take advantage of our great selection and prices until May 31, 2009. Please make sure you have signed up to receive emails from us so you don’t miss out on special offers and important updates. Click here to sign up.

As you can see, there will be no more BMG Music Service. Back in December they stopped taking new customers so the writing was on the wall. If you head over to http://www.bmgmusic.com/ you get a nice message that tells you plain and simple – no new customers.

As I already said, this isnt shocking, its just sad in a way.  So what is the next type of site/product to give way to 2009?
