UK – Streaming might shake up the charts

Streaming is becoming increasingly popular and the official UK chart company has now decided to count songs being streamed into the official charts.

Given the fact that 260 million streams are being made on a weekly basis in the UK that could shake up the charts considerably.

Streaming services which will be counted: Spotify, Deezer, Napster, 02 Tracks, Music Unlimited, Rara and Xbox Music.

It will be interesting to see if any older songs pop up in the charts as a result.
