Groove Mobile Scores Another Mobile Music First: The Only Service Included in the Official UK Charts

Artists Now Benefit From Purchases on the Groove Mobile Network With Improved Chart Positions

ANDOVER, Mass., and LONDON, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Groove Mobile, the world's leading mobile music service, today announced that over-the-air downloads direct to mobile phones on the Groove Mobile network are the first and only mobile data contributing to the UK's "Combined Official Singles Chart" compiled by The Official Charts Company.

"The mobile music business is a growth area for music sales," said Paul Want, Operations Director for the Official UK Charts Company. "It is important that the Official Charts accurately reflect the music purchased each week, and including the purchases of mobile music lovers using the Groove Mobile platform is a welcome addition to the charts."

Downloads on the Groove Mobile network, which powers Orange's Music Player, are now included on the "Combined Official Singles Chart." Groove Mobile, which currently supplies its data to the "Digital Download Chart," is now the only mobile download service in the UK whose sales have a direct impact on artists' ranking on the "Combined Chart" released each Sunday.

"A top chart position in the UK can literally make an artist's career," said Adam Sexton, Groove Mobile Vice President, Marketing and Product Management. "Since every song purchased on Groove Mobile's platform now counts in the 'Combined Official Singles Charts,' Groove Mobile will quickly become a core part of marketing the hottest new songs and increasing their sales. We look forward to adding other labels to our service, so their artists can also enjoy improved chart positions when fans purchase their songs."
