    The simple answer is all significant retailers. In practice this adds up to retailers representing more than 3,500 over the counter shops, home delivery retailers and a wide range of digital stores. These stores span independent retailers (such as Rough/mail order Trade, Jumbo, Chalky's and many others, all around the country), high street chains (such as HMV, Fopp and WH Smith), supermarkets (such as Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda and Morrisons), internet mail order (such as Amazon, Play.com and Recordstore.co.uk) and download services (iTunes, 7Digital, Amazon MP3, HMV, and others). As a result, we estimate that we capture around 99% of all singles sold, 98% of all albums and 90% of all videos/DVDs.

    I know a guy who every year sends Simon Cowell a letter expressing his disappointment in him for ruining the once noble position of Christmas number 1.

    I would love a real good chart battle between Matt Cardle's 'When we collide' and Biffy's 'Many of Horror'. I prefer Biffy's version but I am biased as Biffy are awesome.

    Mon the Biffy!

    probably has some drone read them. Nevermind as that person will probably get quite a bit of hate mail for Cowell every year!
