GfK Entertainment


The music charts in Germany for many years were known under the name German Charts or Media Control® Charts. As an integral part they have established themselves in radio, in print media, on the Internet and on TV. 

With our international download charts we tracked paid music downloads in Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Austria, Spain and Switzerland. We capture both the sale of physical media, downloads and music streaming. Our partners include the stationary trading, online trading and supplier of digital distribution channels.
