SonicNet Rocks On with Tripod

Internet music network SonicNet continued its expansion strategy by today announcing the signing of a strategic content deal with the Tripod community site, a Lycos company.

Under terms of the deal, SonicNet will provide Tripod with its daily Music News of the World and two Album Reviews per day. The music content will be accessible through Tripod's Entertainment Zone, the firms said. In addition, when technology is in place, Tripod said it will provide its page builders with the option of placing SonicNet's daily news headlines and an artist page search box on their homepages. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

Today's agreement will reportedly bring SonicNet's music content to a new audience of nearly two million community site users, and marks the second such agreement this week. Yesterday, SonicNet announced a partnership with theglobe.com.

"We are very pleased to add Tripod's large community to our roster of content distributors," said Nicholas Butterworth, SonicNet's president. "This deal reaffirms SonicNet's position as the premiere music content providers on the Internet."

SonicNet is a division on TCI Music, Inc.
