MTN has signed a content distribution agreement with Sony Music that will give customers access to Sony’s catalogue of local and international artists.

The operator said that “parties are negotiating the extension of the deal to also include full tracks and albums”, with the current deal giving customers access to caller ring back tones from Sony Music.

The deal comes after news that local songwriters had issued MTN a take-down notice to remove music from its stores due to R1 million in unpaid royalties for 2014.

Sales and Marketing Executive for MTN SA Larry Annetts said: “We have agreed that Sony will administer all royalties payable to their artists directly as well as those due to the relevant collecting societies.”
