7digital claims broadest reach of any MP3 store

Music download service signs deal with Warner

Warner Music and 7digital has announced an extended partnership that will see MP3 music downloads made available across Europe.

"The completion of this deal gives us the broadest European reach of any MP3 download store," said Ben Drury, CEO of 7digital. "We have seen a dramatic rise in digital album sales since switching to a 100% MP3 catalogue in the UK last September and this is a natural progression to that trend. As well as providing music fans access to high quality MP3 downloads, the deal provides our partners with the capacity to target a wider consumer audience across Europe.

7digital stores in France, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy and Portugal will join those in the UK, Ireland, Spain, Austria and Germany that already offer MP3 downloads from Warner Music's roster of local and international artists.

7digital currently provides paid downloads for Spotify, the Swedish music streaming service, offering users the change to buy songs they hear online. 7digital also has partnerships in place with Last.fm, AOL's WinAmp and the open-source Songbird player.
