12th of October, 2010 Bookmark and Share
CompareDownload.com, the UK’s first mp3 price comparison website, was launched last year and has quickly become the No1 destination for comparing music download prices. CompareDownload.com is proud to announce the launch of its brand new website, which will now be available in the USA for the very first time. With no other comprehensive mp3 comparison site operating in the USA, this is a huge step towards saving American consumers money on their music downloads.

With over 50 million tracks available for download in both the UK and the USA, CompareDownload.com boasts by far the biggest database of legal music on both sides of the Atlantic. Supporting the launch of the US version of the site, CompareDownload.com has brokered official deals with Amazon US, iTunes US, Walmart, Emusic US and many more US retailers, offering consumers the most comprehensive selection of music for legal download.

The new US and UK website is a state-of-the-art upgrade from the original UK site, and is jam-packed with a number of new features, designed to offer a complete browsing, reviewing, comparing and purchasing experience for any music fan. The updated site includes:

Official Charts Info – Powered by the Official UK Carts Company, CompareDownload.com has all the latest Top 40 Single and Album charts, updated weekly.

Free Downloads – An entire section of the site is dedicated to offering all the free tracks that are available from a huge number of sources, including top artists such as Tom Jones, Macy Gray and the Manic Street Preachers (available right now from http://www.comparedownload.com/freemusic.php)

Daily Music News – All the latest music news, updated throughout the day, direct from our friends at NME.com.







Biggest Savings – A comprehensive list of the biggest savings to be made on mp3s, including the following incredible deals available right now:

‘Thee King of Pop’ by Michael Jackson (save £11!),
‘Nine Lives’ by Robert Plant (save £40!)
‘The Stone Roses’ by The Stone Roses (save £22!)

Category Browser – A music browser dedicated to searching by style and genre. Each genre can then be sorted through tracks for under 60p ($0.99) and for albums under £5 ($5).

Artists Pages – Each artist now has a dedicated profile page which includes ticket sales from Ticketmaster. Each profile page features top downloads, similar artist suggestions and a comments board.

Subscription Services – CompareDownload.com has extended it subscription services to include:
• Price Alerts – Emails subscribers as soon as selected albums/singles reduce in price
• Favorite Artists – Subscribers can create their own lists of favorite artists
• Reviews & Blogs – Subscribers can now write reviews, blogs and create groups within the site to discuss a particular album or artists.

Both UK and US websites are now live, and with a click of a mouse users can easily switch between the two.

James Bott from CompareDownload.com comments “We have had such a fantastic year and thought it was only right to expand into the US. Our UK users are seeing savings of up to £10 on an album and are coming back time and time again. The US is a huge market and with some prices ranging from $5 to $12.99 for the same album there is definitely a need for the service”
