Downloaded files come with restrictions on their use, enforced by Windows Media DRM, Microsoft''s digital rights management. URGE features the music programming of MTV, CMT, and VH1 and provides editorial content for the online music service. URGE currently charges 99 Ct. a track, or $9.95/month for a subscription. An optional $14.95/month to-go subscription is available for those with PlaysForSure devices. As of May 2008, URGE is not compatible with Microsoft''s Zune or Apple''s iPod, although the first-generation Zune Marketplace was based on URGE, and had many similarities.
