[Finland/Norway] UK-based MP3 music download service 7digital has opened two new stores in Europe.

As of today, music fans in Finland and Norway can download tracks from 7digital’s catalogue of over 8 million “high quality” (320kbps) MP3s. This brings the total number of countries where the company operates to 16.

7digital won’t be the only one to benefit as its various partners will also now be able to offer downloads in those two countries. One of those partners, of course, is the much hyped music streaming service Spotify, which conveniently counts both Finland and Norway as two of only six European countries where it currently operates. Perhaps this played a part in 7digital’s Nordic expansion? Other partners include and AOL’s Winamp application.

This new Finland and Norway offering gives 7digital the widest MP3 reach in Europe, says the company, which should be pleasing to its new shareholders. UK music retailer HMV recently acquired a 50% stake in 7digital for £7.7 million, providing VC backers Balderton Capital and Sutton Place Managers with a tidy exit.

    Sounds like a good plan, both parties will gain well from this. Good to see local companies (7 Digital) gain traction outside of the UK.

    I would have thought the company would have been valued higher than approx £15m!

    I am happy to go to the company party or dinner party with replica Prada handbags, which makes me more confident and elegant. I got many compliments from my friends or coworkers because they are definitely eager to buy replica Hermes. I give them some information about how to check whether it is authentic or counterfeit replica chloe, and I share the feelings of owning replica Christian Dior with my sisters. They indeed can get some information that is useful to them, especially during the time of shopping in online store.
