Hudson Entertainment, a premier provider of entertainment content, announced today that it has signed a licensing and distribution agreement with Napster to further extend its digital music offerings.

The new deal with Napster will allow Hudson Entertainment's music division to offer full-length music tracks from top independent music labels and artists through Napster's on-demand music subscription service, which boasts more than 760,000 subscribers. Hudson Entertainment's extensive catalog offers over 10,000 tracks from well known and up-and-coming artists across all music genres including Kirsten Proffit, Gene and Jezebel, Omar Torrez, Del Bombers, Cloud Eleven, Alan Smithee, Punsapaya, Alan Reid, The J Band, Paperback Hero, Denny Earnest, Lastonedone, Caution Cat, Conrizzle, and more.

"The partnership with Napster allows us to tap into a strong, loyal and very educated music audience," said John Greiner, President of Hudson Entertainment. "Napster's subscribers are intelligent connoisseurs of music, and we know that our eclectic and extensive catalog will be something they will appreciate and enjoy."

"We are very pleased to be bringing Kirsten Proffit and the rest of the Hudson stable of acts to Napster's subscribers all over the world," said Matthew Adell, Vice President of Music Services at Napster.

This new partnership follows on the heels of Hudson's recent announcement of a similar deal with eMusic, further strengthening its position as one of the largest digital music distributors in the US.
