    Seattle (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Homedownloads.se Launches in Sweden With Introductory Pricing of 5 Crowns per Track; Represents First Store in Sweden Powered by Loudeye's OD2 Services

    Loudeye Corp. (Nasdaq: LOUD), a worldwide leader in business-to-business digital media solutions, today announced it was chosen by Home Entertainment AB, the Nordic region's largest mail-order/e-tailing business within movies, music and multimedia, to power a privately branded digital music download store located at www.homedownloads.se. The launch represents the expansion of Loudeye's services into Sweden -- the 18th country in which Loudeye provides music services.

    Homedownloads.se, powered by Loudeye's OD2 services, is live today and features music from major and independent labels. With more than 300,000 tracks, Homedownloads.se is the largest legal download service in Sweden and will be offering downloads for the special introductory price of 5 Swedish crowns for a limited time.

    "Loudeye's OD2 services were critical in ensuring the launch of our music store in time for the important holiday shopping season," says Niklas Orup, Home Entertainment AB. "By working with OD2, we were able to focus on integrating a music store into our business, and not have to worry about the intricacies of the deployment itself. Additionally, OD2 will maintain content updates on a regular basis and help grow the size of our catalog, which will add further value for music fans in Sweden."

    Among the tracks available are pre-releases of Kylie Minogue's "I Believe in You," Erasure's "Breathe" and "Galvanise" from The Chemical Brothers.

    "With the holiday shopping season right around the corner and portable music players expected to be one of the hottest gifts of the year, companies such as Home Entertainment are able to work with us to rapidly launch a store and begin to create early brand affinity with consumers in their region," said Charles Grimsdale, president and general manager of Loudeye's international business operations.
