Napster UK reveals sales figures

55 million downloads and streams in 15 months

Napster UK has released statistics reflecting the use of its UK service for the first time.

The figures claim Napster now has 750,000 registered UK members. The company also declares it has achieved 55 million downloads and streams in 15 months.

Demographic information released by the company confirms that 80 per cent of its subscribers are over 25, and that 75 per cent are male. "Over 50 per cent have kids," the company adds.

Napster also claimed there has been a change in music buying habits, revealing: "One in five Napster members no longer buy CDs."

The claim does mean the majority of digital music users also buy CDs.
