Legal downloads have become the second most popular single format in Britain.
According to the official charts company, more than 150,000 downloads were purchased last month. This is more than sales of vinyl and DVD singles, but less than CD singles.
BBC news reports that the increase has been boosted by 50,000 downloads in the launch week of Coke’s download service MyCokeMusic.
