Things are moving so quickly here that we nearly forgot to stop and celebrate. In March, Napster expanded into an additional five countries across Latin America, including Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama. This expansion was made possible thanks to our collaboration with Telefónica’s trademark brand Movistar, one of the leading telecommunication companies in the region. Today, Napster is now available in 13 countries across Latin America.
One of the most interesting things that we’re seeing from our Napster members in Latin America is the high rate of mobile listening. While more than 70 percent of our global base is listening to Rhapsody or Napster exclusively on their mobile phone, that number is over 90% across Latin America. This is in huge part to our partnership with Movistar, which makes it easy sign-up and enjoy more than 35 million tracks in palm of your hand.
