Tunefind Acquires Heard on TV, Hits 3 Million Unique Users per Month

Tunefind, the go-to destination for TV and film music discovery, has acquired France-based Heard on TV, another TV music site. Heard on TV’s content will now redirect to Tunefind.

“Heard on TV has a similar mentality to Tunefind, in that it was also started by a TV music fan, for fans as a passion project,” explains Tunefind’s Amanda Byers. “We’re excited to welcome the Heard on TV community to the Tunefind fold.”

This acquisition is part of an international growth strategy that has helped the site reach over 3M unique visitors and 4.5 M sessions this month.

“Our growth rate is more than 60% year over year,” says Byers, “and it’s accelerating. We’ve expanded our tv show and movie coverage aggressively over the past two years and now fans know Tunefind is their one-stop resource for tv and film music.”

The growth points not just to the site’s extensive coverage - music soundtracks for over 900 tv shows and over 1000 movies are tracked on the site - but to the major shift in the way music, television, and fandom intersect. “People are looking for good music, but the traditional means are less central in people’s lives, whether we’re talking commercial broadcast radio or the local record store. Fans already have a connection to their favorite TV shows, and Tunefind’s growth stems from the surge of people interested in music they are hearing as they’re watching a show and engaging with its story and characters.”

Tunefind’s users are already invested in shows, and the music is part of what they love. These committed fans find the TV landscape is easier to navigate than a music streaming service, whose volume of content can feel overwhelming. A sea change is underway, from the coverage of soundtracks and TV music in the media, to the latest Emmy addition honoring music supervisors. 

Though this is Tunefind’s first formal business deal with a European company, the site’s traffic increasingly comes from overseas. “US traffic is 40% now, with 60% coming from outside the country,” states Byers. “That was flipped 5 years ago. With the rise of the video streaming services, we’re seeing audiences become truly global as content is redistributed around the world.”
