  • Ponomusic - special announcement


    To the PonoMusic Community - our loyal customers and supporters:

    We hope you are enjoying the summer and the music you've purchased at

    We have some news that we want to share with you.

    One of our key infrastructure partners - Omnifone - has been acquired by a large company. An impact of this purchase is that all Omnifone's supply relationships are being terminated, effectively immediately. Omnifone has been the exclusive content provider for PonoMusic. Consequently, our music library will be temporarily suspended for purchases effective July 20th . Please rest assured that our contractual relationships with all the major music labels remain fully intact and will transition to our new platform.

    In anticipation of this announcement, some time ago we began negotiations to move our content provision to 7digital, the leading independent music content/services platform. This process is now well underway, but not yet complete. During the transition, the store will be under construction and not functional. We ask that you please complete any music purchases you were considering, or wish to undertake, by Tuesday, July 19th.

    Our PonoCommunity will continue as normal and we will keep everyone up to date with our progress.

    With our partners at 7digital, we will determine the timeframe of this transition. Right now, we believe this transition process that will take several weeks to achieve. In the meantime, please stay connected to the site and the community and keep listening to and enjoying the music you have. This transition is our highest priority and will remain so until we are live again and providing our customers with seamless access to music in the highest quality available.

    On a positive note, this partnership brings fresh opportunities to extend our catalogue of music. We look forward to having an even wider range of titles to offer you.

    Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support.
    The Ponomusic Team.

            Perhaps it doesn't fit under their business model?
