7DIGITAL has pacted with SPANISH BROADCASTING SYSTEM (SBS) to create new music offerings including a radio-style streaming service. As part of this agreement, 7DIGITAL’s platform will be used to power the new service for SBS in the U.S. under their brand LA MUSICA.
7DIGITAL’s API and infrastructure will provide LA MUSICA, SBS' online Latin music, entertainment and news destination, with secure content management technology and a royalty reporting system to support additional music products beyond the site's current radio station streaming offering
“LA MUSICA from SBS is a perfect example of the kind of services we are seeing emerging from the world’s more visionary radio companies as radio and streaming music come together," 7DIGITAL CEO SIMON COLE said. "Listeners want more from their radio experience and users of streamed music services want the content curation and ‘lean back’ experience that radio can offer. I’m pleased that our expertise in both music and radio, access to catalogue and a robust streaming platform has allowed SBS to bring this service quickly to market and I expect it to be a great success.”
