Content creator and distributor TEAM ROCK celebrates its second anniversary by announcing it has reached one million registered users, four times its original target.
The majority of the LONDON-based company are from across the world, especially the U.S. TEAM ROCK will not be renewing its contract with ARQIVA on D1, which expires at the end of JUNE, but has instead created a new global partnership with the digital music platform 7DIGITAL.
Commented TEAM ROCK CEO BILLY ANDERSON: “TEAMROCK.COM is a global business. We are proudly based in the U.K., but the speed of our growth means we constantly have to adapt to global demands for our product. Our fan base want streaming, downloads, specific programming, interviews and insight alongside the ability to listen back to what we produce at their leisure. This new collaboration with 7DIGITAL will allow us to provide that service. Our goal is to deliver audio that caters for how society wants to consume it. People are choosing when and how they access audio, rather than just traditional live programming.”
TeamRock.com has also invested in transforming its world renowned and valuable rock magazines into ‘best of class’ digital products, now available for both iOS and Android users, along with the ability for members to go deep into the archive of past editions. In addition, the group has this week moved into new, state of the art facilities, in Pentonville Road, London, where audio, magazines, digital, visual, sales and marketing, will be housed under one roof.
Added 7DIGITAL CEO SIMON COLE; “We are proud to be the chosen partner for TEAM ROCK as the company makes this major step change. Helping brands develop a compelling and creative audio presence in the rapidly growing global marketplace is a fundamental plank of our strategy at 7DIGITAL and we look forward to playing our part in making TEAM ROCK the destination for rock fans all over the world however they want to consume their music."
