Subscription music chart launches in the UK

Wednesday 24 September 2008 | 15:22 CET | News
The Official Charts Company (OCC), a JV between UK record labels body BPOI and the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA), has launched a new music subscription chart in the UK. The Official Subscription Plays Chart ranks the most played tracks by UK users of subscription services, based on plays data supplied by Napster, Omnifone, HMV and Nokia Music Store. The data will initially comprise a weekly Top 500 most-played tracks for industry use. The data will be incorporated into the OCC's definitive online database in 2009, providing subscribers with a wide range of functionality and additional data breakdowns. OCC will add data from additional subscription music services as they are launched in the UK. OCC managing director Martin Talbot said he believed this was the first music subscription chart in the world.
