Playdium, the smart jukebox which is widely regarded by US operators as representing the ‘next generation’ entertainment platform, was unveiled to an audience of UK operators at last week’s Autumn Coin-Op Show (ACOS), held at the home of Chelsea Football Club. The official UK launch was attended by many of the UK’s leading music operators and hosted by TouchTunes Chairman and CEO, Charles Goldstuck, European Managing Director, Alan Newham, Simon Davis of Soundnet and Sound Leisure’s Chris Black.

The network of 65,000 TouchTunes jukeboxes represents the largest in North America and TouchTunes believes the partnership with its Soundnet subsidiary and Sound Leisure will help to rejuvenate the UK jukebox market. European Managing Director, Alan Newham said: “Working alongside Sound Leisure represents an exciting commercial opportunity for everyone involved in the in-venue pay to play music sector.

“ACOS provided us the chance to explain fully the game changing nature of Playdium, its features and benefits to a key group of decision makers. Our stand was constantly busy and I am delighted that so many operators accepted our invitation to join us at Playdium’s official UK launch event at the Millenium Hotel.”

Playdium has been tested in the UK over a six month period, with TouchTunes reporting significant cash box income figures.
