Pacts with IODA, RoyaltyShare.
Independent music distributor Koch Entertainment Distribution has extended its reach through separate partnerships with the Independent Online Distribution Alliance and RoyaltyShare.
The company also converted more than 40 labels on its physical roster into exclusive digital distribution agreements, including Acoustic Disc, Bar None, Sliva Screen, Sanctuary Classics/ASV and Fat Boy.
Through its deal with IODA, Koch can now offer labels placement on more than 150 independent digital music services and stores. Koch manages relationships with the larger digital retailers like iTunes, Napster and Rhapsody directly. Koch also will make select released available on IODA’s Promonet network, which delivers rights-cleared tracks to podcasts, blogs and Internet radio stations.
With RoyaltyShare, Koch will track sales data and develop royalty reporting tools so labels can monitor their digital sales activity.
