MusicNet, a pioneer in the digital delivery of music content based in New York City, has expanded its content and technology offerings and renamed itself MediaNet Digital. MediaNet’s proprietary digital media distribution platform has been expanded to incorporate additional forms of media, including music videos, television and film.
MediaNet continues to serve business-to-business digital music distribution delivery markets worldwide. Based in New York with offices in Seattle and London, MediaNet provides back-end technology and licensed content to preeminent digital music services including Yahoo! Music, MTV’s Urge, Virgin, HMV, Samsung and Microsoft’s Zune, among others.
“Our mission from the start has been to help the entertainment industry make the challenging transition from analog content to digital; we’ve certainly been at the forefront of that effort with respect to music,” says MediaNet president and CEO, Alan McGlade,. “The expansion to MediaNet, with the addition of premium digital content across all major forms of media, is a natural extension to our successful music heritage.
“MediaNet’s platform is built on a foundation of outstanding relationships with content providers and distribution partners in bringing the finest digital entertainment to consumers, from the latest albums and music videos to television shows and feature films,” McGlade adds.
Ian Rogers, general manager of Yahoo! Music, commented: “Yahoo! Music has enjoyed a long-standing, successful partnership with MusicNet. Their proven track record as a digital music platform demonstrates the expertise essential for expansion into other types of entertainment.”
