A new service launches this week promising consumers a way to save money on legal downloads.
Comparedownload.com primarily offers services similar to how price comparison websites do, with the aim of giving the consumer a choice from where to legally download.

By brokering deals with key online retailers including iTunes UK, Amazon UK, 7 Digital, Play.com, Tesco Digital and We7, the site offers a catalog of 10 million tracks. As well it offers reviews, up to date information on artists and gig tickets.

Comparedownload.com’s founder James Bott says, “The inspiration for the site was born out of frustration at having to search through a range of stores to find the music I wanted at the right price.
“As the site developed, it was clear it could be so much more than just a price comparison site: to get everything that I wanted as a music fan I used to have to hunt through dozens of sites – now it’s all available at Comparedownload.com.”

Comparedownload provides plenty of opportunity for interactivity: Users can add their own feedback and opinion regarding tracks as well as share play lists via an email link.

Comparedownloads co-founder Darren Sher adds, “No longer are you tied to one provider: through our ground-breaking search technology, CompareDownload brings transparency to the music download industry.”
