Team Rock Enters into Agreement with 7digital
TeamRock.com Reaches One Million Registered Users
Enters into Agreement with 7digital to Deliver Audio and Content Worldwide
TeamRock, the multi-media content creation and distribution business for the global rock community, is now two years old, and has achieved One Million registered Users, four times its original target.
While the UK is an important market, the majority of TeamRock.com sign-ups are from across the world, in particular the USA. To take account of this, TeamRock will not be renewing its contract with Arqiva on D1, which expires at the end of June, but has instead created a new global partnership with the digital music platform, 7digital. This deal will allow the company to expand their service worldwide.
Commenting TeamRock CEO Billy Anderson said:
“TeamRock.com is a global business. We are proudly based in the UK, but the speed of our growth means we constantly have to adapt to global demands for our product. Our fan base want streaming, downloads, specific programming, interviews and insight alongside the ability to listen back to what we produce at their leisure. This new collaboration with 7digital will allow us to provide that service. The future, for TeamRock.com, is to deliver audio that caters for how society wants to consume it. People are choosing when and how they access audio, rather than just traditional live programming.”
The radio division will continue, but it will also deliver bespoke products for our fan base and radio partners worldwide. We already have syndicated partners in various parts of the world, including Australia, Europe and Asia.
TeamRock.com has also invested in transforming its world renowned and valuable rock magazines into ‘best of class’ digital products, now available for both iOS and Android users, along with the ability for members to go deep into the archive of past editions. In addition, the group has this week moved into new, state of the art facilities, in Pentonville Road, London, where audio, magazines, digital, visual, sales and marketing, will be housed under one roof.
Simon Cole, CEO of 7digital commented:
“We are proud to be the chosen partner for TeamRock as the company makes this major step change. Helping brands develop a compelling and creative audio presence in the rapidly growing global marketplace is a fundamental plank of our strategy at 7digtal and we look forward to playing our part in making TeamRock the destination for rock fans all over the world however they want to consume their music .”
