From London (Reuters):

British consumers are set to be the first in the world able to buy songs instantly as they listen to them on digital radio, using a download service announced on Monday by UBC Media.

The London-based radio programming producer said it would begin testing the technology on Chrysalis Group’s Heart station, with plans for a full roll-out by December.

It added that digital-radio-enabled mobile phones would be available later this year.

Korean handset makers LG and Samsung Electronics have said they expect 500,000 such phones in the UK over the next 18 months and about 10 million by the end of the decade, according to UBC Chief Executive Simon Cole.
