Happy Halloween from WaTunes!

Hey guys,

First off, Happy Halloween to some of you and I hope you guys are enjoying your holidays. Today we have some very great new updates for WaTunes. As you guys know the VIP service has been changed to a monthly subscription service of $12.95 per month. Now I’ve been getting e-mails from current VIP members on whether or not they have to pay this new monthly fee. The answer is: Nope. If you are a currently active VIP customer, you do not have to pay the newly $12.95 per month and that your yearly subscription fee will be with you until you decide to cancel.

So how do I become a VIP?

Simple. Log in to your WaTunes account, click on ‘Add-Ons’ and purchase the VIP service. The moment you subscribe, we then check your purchase and your WaTunes account and any content you’ve delivered to us. Afterwards, your contents will automatically be delivered to the other digital services. No more waiting, no more hassles! A completely new and transparent service with the cheapest limitations. Now for just $12.95 per month, get your music into the world’s biggest digital stores, mobile stores, and gaming consoles, keep 100% of your royalties, and more!

Introducing WaTV NET

Got a Music Video, Film, Documentary, TV Show? Now you can subscribe to the new WaTV Net subscription service for just $5.95 per month and submit unlimited video contents to WaTV. We then also automatically place them into our video channels including YouTube, AOL, and more!

So how do you get started?

Simple. Log into your WaTunes account, click on ‘Add-Ons’ and purchase the WaTV NET subscription service. Afterwards, we’ll give you a temporary FTP account where you can deliver your video contents. From there, our WaTV Programming Team will get you started in putting your videos on WaTV and so much more!

Get into the new features and services this Holiday season today! As always, please let us know if you have any questions regarding any new updates on WaTunes!

New Site Updates + Building Your WaTunes Profile!

Hey guys,

We’ve updated our website a bit and have enabled a profile based feel. Please by all means, update your profile with as much information as you can as this will help build your presence in WaTunes. Now a lot of people have been asking me:

Q: If I go through another distributor, can I still be apart of WaTunes?

A: The answer is: Absolutely!

WaTunes is a very social driven service and enables anyone and everyone from any distributor or any website to showcase their music, attract new fans, and collaborate with new and interesting artists without using the WaTunes distribution service. Get all of your information from one place through WaTunes and much more.

So if you’re a WaTunes user, updating your WaTunes profile is the first step to building exposure in a mature space. Promoting your WaTunes profile is also a great way to gain exposure, increase sales, and give you fans instant interaction through your Profile. Are you on Skype? Then update your WaTunes profile to enable fans and fellow artists to give you an instant call, all for FREE!

Without further delays, I introduce you guys to check out our new updates and have fun building your profiles!
