Relive the Sprint Super Bowl XL Halftime Show Featuring The Rolling Stones
RESTON, Va. — 02/07/2006
What a game – and what a performance by The Rolling Stones. Starting today, Sprint (NYSE: S) Music Store customers can relive the excitement of the Super Bowl XL Halftime Show whenever they choose.
Until March 31, 2006, only Sprint Music Store customers can purchase these exclusive tracks: each high-quality, digital recording of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Start Me Up" and "Rough Justice" from the Sprint Super Bowl XL Halftime Show costs $2.50.
When the purchase is complete, customers receive two high-quality copies of the song: one version formatted to play and enjoy only on their Sprint Power VisionSM phones, and another version formatted to download to their PC's. Customers can also burn their music to a CD.
"This is another exciting element of Sprint's Super Bowl XL sponsorship reserved for our customers," said Steve Gaffney, director of marketing for Sprint. "Last year, Sprint introduced the first wireless music store in the United States. We want our customers to be able to replay the fantastic songs from the halftime show whenever they want."

In October 2005, Sprint opened the first wireless music store in the United States that allows its customers to browse, preview, download, play and manage high-quality digital music, right from their Sprint Power Vision phones. Sprint customers can now enjoy music on the go and have the ability to purchase and download music when they want to – not just when they are in front of a PC.
