TELUS have announced they now offer over-the-air DRM-free music tracks to Canadians. Their catalog has over 2.5 million tracks including both Anglo and Francophone artists. The tracks are available right from your device, and the following BlackBerrys are supported:

  • BlackBerry Storm2
  • BlackBerry Tour
  • BlackBerry Storm
  • BlackBerry Pearl Flip
  • BlackBerry Curve 8330
  • BlackBerry Curve 8530

The part of the program that I don’t fully understand is their “DRM-Free upgrade offer”. TELUS are offering users to “upgrade” eligible DRM files to become DRM-Free. This service costs 30 cents per trade with a bulk upgrade available. I guess this is helpful for users who are on iTunes, Yahoo! etc and want to move their music around, but I’m under the impression these services all offer premium DRM-free anyways.
