Music streaming encourages record sales, new report suggests

A report by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) finds that 37 percent of streaming subscribers say that using such services has increased the amount that they spend on downloads. 66 percent of those surveyed described themselves as ‘multi-channel’ consumers, with 13 percent of people claiming that streaming had led them to buy more CDs, while 19 percent said they purchased more vinyl because of streaming. – Luke Morgan Britton, NME Magazine
