Groove Mobile Partners With 3UK In New Mobile Music Service
Groove Mobile and 3UK, the UK’s leading mobile media company, announced that they are joining forces to power an innovative mobile music service on 3UK’s network. Groove Mobile will bring its music service to 3UK’s leading 3G network, which is currently number one in the UK mobile music download market.
3UK’s mobile music service powered by Groove Mobile will enable customers to download music simultaneously from their phone to their PC and vice versa. It will bring online music purchasing for both home and mobile into one seamless experience.
In addition to providing full-track music downloads direct to mobile handsets, the new music service will include access to multiple charts, downloading high quality album art, shop and play, browsing and previews, and exclusive content. The music service will allow customers who purchase music over the air to get their track delivered to their handset, and get a copy of their track online. They can then play it on their laptop or PC, transfer it onto an MP3 player, or burn it onto a CD. They can also purchase the track on their PC (via three.co.uk) and then download, it free of charge, to their mobile. Also, in the event that a customer loses/ deletes a track, they are able to re-download the track up to 3 times, free of charge. Sounds good to us!
Groove Mobile also powers the award winning Sprint Music Store, the first over-the-air full-track download service to launch in the United States. Last year in the UK, Groove Mobile-powered music services received top ratings from mobile music customers in What Now magazine and from independent analysts at Strategy Analytics, an industry research firm.
