Following BlackBerry’s decision to close the music and video sections of BlackBerry World, 7digital have said that they continue to work with BlackBerry on an alternative solution.

“The company continues to work with BlackBerry under its existing contract which provides for the continuation of a music service in the event that BlackBerry were to close its own music store,”

7Digital believes BlackBerry intends to continue to provide its users with access to the music they have already purchased using 7digital services.

It confirmed it was working with BlackBerry on an alternative solution for the purchase of new music.

7digital Chief Executive, Simon Cole, said:

“7digital Group operates in a fast-growing and quickly-changing marketplace. As outlined in the recent admission document, the consumer market in which many of our customers operate is transitioning from a download to a streamed environment.

“As a leading supplier of B2B services in the music and radio industry, 7digital helps new and existing customers to find ways of adapting to this changing market and that is what powers demand for our services.”
