Napster Group PLC ("Napster" or the "Group"), a leading music company and operator of the MelodyVR and Napster platforms, announces that it has expanded Sonos Radio HD "Powered by Napster" into five new territories in partnership with Sonos. Napster's music platform powers the streaming and catalogue licensing for Sonos Radio HD and was first made available last year in the United States and UK. The agreement, announced today, will see Sonos Radio HD stations also made available in Germany, The Netherlands, Canada, Austria and France. As part of the agreement the Group will receive an upfront payment together with a monthly fee from Sonos Radio HD and additional payments on a per subscriber basis.

"The B2B market is a key part of the Napster model and provides an additional revenue stream to complement the B2C market. We believe that Sonos Radio HD is one of the most innovative services on the market for music and together we want as many people as possible to have access to it. By utilising our unique technologies we are able to support Sonos in their global expansion. We are excited to see our collaboration with Sonos grow, having demonstrated great success since the initial launch earlier this year."
