Michael Jackson Pushes Telecom Over 2 Million

Michael Jackson Pushes Telecom Over 2 Million

Telecom’s Music Store hit 2 million tracks this week with the addition of Michael Jackson’s 25th Anniversary edition of the Thriller album.

The milestone gives Telecom customers access to New Zealand’s most extensive mobile catalogue of tracks for download to mobile.

David Craig, Telecom’s GM of Marketing says the vast range of tracks reflects the growing demand for access to music anywhere, anytime.

“One of the key benefits for customers downloading from the Telecom Music Store is accessibility. Our customers don’t have to be tied to a PC or need to connect. If they hear a tune they like playing somewhere; it can be theirs with the push of a button,” he says.

Telecom Music Store’s substantial catalogue has tracks available for purchase including chart hits, a back catalogue full of hits of different genres, and classic releases from 60s & 70s.

Recently upgraded, the Telecom Music Store now cross references purchases customers make with other music they may like to try.

“Telecom is committed to offering a great music service to New Zealanders - the best range of music content available for customers we possibly can,” says Mr Craig.
