Music Week feature celebrates Soundnet’s partnership with the Official Charts Company

Soundnet are delighted to report that our background music serviceshave been featured in national industry publication, Music Week, as the only jukebox operator to partner with the Official Charts Company.

Given the magazine’s reputation within the music industry, running for more than fifty years and read by over 5000 sector members, the piece represents a real recognition of Soundnet’s efforts to become the UK’s leading jukebox service provider.

As the Music Week article conveys, Soundnet’s recent deal with the Official Charts Company aims to solidify this position and prove Soundnet’s commitment to providing customers with a more engaging jukebox experience. The partnership sees Soundnet become the exclusive jukebox operator to feature the Official UK Singles Chart, giving landlords the opportunity to offer pub-goers the latest Sunday chart entries the very next day.

This has particularly important consequences for landlords’ cash box levels, given that Soundnet research shows Chart and New Releases represent eighty per cent of jukebox selections. As Giles Jones, Head of Commercial at the Official Charts Company, explained at the time of the deal;

“For many music fans, an evening out wouldn’t be the same without the UK’s latest hits as a soundtrack. We are delighted to renew and exclusively extend our agreement with Soundnet and significantly increase the reach of the Official Singles Chart to the consumer.”

In support of this on-going partnership with the Official Chart Company, Soundnet have been working on developing a number of new jukebox features to help pub-goers discover fresh chart tracks and emerging artists.

“The Official Charts Company is fully committed to expanding its reach of the chart,” asserts Soundnet’s Managing Director, Simon Davis, concluding, “This will only benefit our customers and the income in the jukeboxes.”
