7digital Announces Enhanced Music Streaming Solution for DMCA Radio Partners

Press Release

New York, NY, 6 June 2013 - 7digital, the world’s leading open digital music platform, today announced the availability of its solution for streaming radio. 7digital’s enhanced API and capability for DMCA-compliant radio services has been made available to enable U.S.-based partners to launch their own unique, customizable radio streaming music services.

With continued consumer demand for convenient and innovative access to music, 7digital is seizing the opportunity to enhance the listening experience by bringing customizable, lean-back streaming options to music lovers world-wide. By providing DMCA radio partners access to 7digital’s entire catalog of 25+ million tracks, companies ranging from major brands to music start-ups can now launch their own music streaming services, opening up the digital music landscape to a plethora of complimentary competitive services.

With this additional feature of 7digital’s platform, partners can build custom radio services that enable listeners to hear their favorite artists, enjoy the latest hits and discover the next big star all on their own terms.

Key Features Include:

  • Full catalog radio inclusion – 7digital’s catalog of millions of tracks from indie and major labels now available to U.S. based DMCA radio partners
  • 7digital reporting made available to partners for all related digital performance royalties on behalf of featured recording artists, master rights owners and independent artists to SoundExchange.
  • Turn-key purchase fulfilment added to 7digital’s API, enabling U.S. based DMCA radio partners to launch seamless radio streaming services and integrated purchasing into their user experience.  Application also allows an additional partner revenue share from purchases

7digital is already providing streaming support and technology for U.S based DMCA radio partners, including doubleTwist for Magic Radio on Android, Senzari for Wah Wah, Turntable.fm and Piki, and Sourcetone.  7digital’s catalog is also matched to EchoNest IDs for optimal integrations.

“Radio is a core music experience for discovery, low barrier access, and ease of use.  The terrestrial radio market has always done a great job of making it easy to enjoy programmed music and we want to encourage and support the traditional, terrestrial radio market to move into digital, as well as offering application developers the best possible solution.  A tightly integrated purchase experience also gives consumers both discovery and ownership in one app, which only adds greater value to any DMCA radio service,” said Vickie Nauman, Vice President of North America at 7digital. “We also want to encourage US companies who are creating great radio services under the DMCA to work with 7digital to expand their radio services internationally with 7digital’s global platform and rights.”

7digital will unveil more details about the importance of radio and its DMCA music streaming solution during a partner and press event workshop, including demonstrations by Turntable and Sourcetone, in New York City on Wednesday, June 12.
