Cdigix Reports 150,000 Songs Downloaded In Less Than One Week At Purdue University
With the fall school term just underway at most colleges, Cdigix and its music service Ctrax are finding early usage success at several schools, including Purdue University. Roughly 150,000 songs were downloaded in the first week that the Ctrax service was launched, with more than 2,000 subscription sign ups thus far. This translates into nearly 20,000 songs per day from Purdue students. Due to this success, Cdigix is being approached by a steady flow of new schools seeking to offer legal digital media alternatives. It is anticipated that Ctrax will be available at 20 schools in the Spring 2005 term and many more in the Fall 2005 term.
"The popularity of our service and usage numbers from Purdue in such a short window is very encouraging to us," said Brett Goldberg, President, Cdigix. "It is clear that there is a rising demand for access to legitimate music on college campuses and the Cdigix service is on the forefront."
Due to a large demand from students who are seeking access to a legal digital music service but are not affiliated with a Cdigix partner school, the company is preparing to launch the Ctrax service for all college and university students nationwide. Starting this month, the Ctrax music service will be available to any college student with a ".edu" email address.
