New York, NY – QVIVO, the recently announced entertainment software company created by former Disney and Electronic Arts executives, announced on November 3, 2010 its partnership with 7digital, a leading digital media company, to offer over 10 million DRM-free music tracks – from major labels and thousands of independent labels – for sale via its social media center. “We’re focused on growing QVIVO into a premier social entertainment platform,” said Jon Niermann, co-Founder of QVIVO. “To offer such a vast catalogue of music from all major labels and thousands of independent labels ready for launch shows our commitment to that goal.”
Ready for the December holiday season, the free QVIVO social media center software will include the QStore, an easy to use digital media store allowing users to purchase and download movies, TV shows and music from top entertainment companies directly to their QVIVO library to be played locally or streamed to other QVIVO enabled devices. “The entire QVIVO experience is being built with simplicity in mind, and those same principles apply to the QStore,” said Liam McCallum, co-Founder and Executive Producer of QVIVO. “7digital’s relationships and technologies have been essential in building a product that compliments the customers exiting media library with millions of additional choices.”
