We're delighted to announce the launch of our new hmv website. Making tens of thousands of music, movie and game titles, many at great pricing, to the UK market. We're looking to work with partners to help us make this a success.
Run as a separate operation to both our other hmv, XVMarketplace and Xtra-vision websites; hmvshop.co.uk is an online focused, competitive entertainment website. Our hmvshop has different pricing to the rest of our estate. Presenting great savings particularly on new games, compared to our competitors and our other websites.
We have upgraded our infrastructure over the past week to deal with the recent dramatic increase in demand seen due to our hmv sale and improved our UK distribution.
We would especially like to work with partners to drive not only the sale, but weekly new releases.
hmv is a brand that needs little introduction, hmv accounts for nearly 1 in 3 entertainment sales in the UK.
We are entertainment specialists – we focus on movies, music, games and other entertainment products. We have hmv exclusive products, DLC, titles and market leading offers. We have distribution points in both the UK and ROI that gives us a competitive advantage to both Ireland based and UK based competitors.
Our new website has been redesigned from the ground up, focused on generating website conversions. We have a highly usable website format that has been optimized for all devices and a roadmap of new features and products that will be added to the sites as they develop.
What are the benefits of hmvshop.co.uk?
First of all, we’re hungry to succeed and we’re willing to work with our affiliate partners, to drive sales to our new hmv retail sites. The old hmv.com website was once one of the biggest entertainment retail sites in the UK, shipping to both the UK, Ireland and beyond.
We have one of the biggest entertainment brands in the world and are regularly featured as one of the UK’s favourite brands (YouGov – 2014). Our live gigs and entertainment events have turned our newly relaunched hmv stores in Ireland and the UK into some of the most sought after venues for aspiring artists – and for hmv to become a trendsetter.
We believe with the support of our affiliate partners, we will drive a profitable and sustainable business for both of us.

Why join the hmv affiliate programme?
Be part of something special that could be REALLY big for you and us.
Don’t believe everything you read in the papers, the physical entertainment industry is worth over £2 billion in the UK and Ireland. While digital channels will continue to grow, physical sales will remain the main way that customers engage with entertainment content for the foreseeable future.
Since its inception in 1899, hmv has continually reinvented itself to stay relevant to the consumers of the day, and we’ll continue to do so. We had a great year in both Ireland and the UK last year and our return to online retail after an 18 month break is another way of reacting to consumer demand.
Our two new retail websites, hmv.ie and hmvireland.co.uk have been completely rebuilt from the ground up and generated more sales in one week, than in the previous six months of operation. This is a superior platform to the past ecommerce offerings from hmv, which is saying a lot as hmv was previously one of the leading entertainment retail sites in Europe.
We’re backed by hmv & Xtra-vision, two leading brands in entertainment, and the websites themselves have been established by ecommerce professionals and entertainment industry leaders with over 30 years of ecommerce experience between them.
The website is high conversion already but will continue to mature as we add new titles and features; we will release discount vouchers and work with our most effective affiliate partners (large and small) to make this a success. So what are you waiting for?
We also have a suite of creative banners for you to use to promote our hmvshop.co.uk offering (please access these from our profile), with more added every couple of weeks.
Affiliate Incentive: For every 10 sales generated before 30th August 2014. We will enter you into a prize draw to WIN! a PlayStation 4.
