I streamed the original version of Lana Del Rey's Summertime Sadness from 11:58pm to 12:01 am last night which was during the cut-off point in the tracking week, so would this play have counted in today's chart or will it be next week? Certainly not both.

I would imagine if you started downloading it at 11:58, it would belong into today's chart, that was just announced. unsure.gif

A stream is counted at 30 seconds, I think? So it would've counted to the chart published today.

I believe you only need to stream the first 30 seconds of a song for it to count, so streaming at 11:59:29pm is the latest time you can stream a song before the new chart. 11:59:30pm would mean 30 seconds would put it at 12am in the new chart week and would count for next week's chart. At least I think that's how it works.

You only have to stream it for 30 seconds for it to count right? So if you started at 11:58pm it should count towards that chart.

Not sure what would happen if you started at say 10 seconds to midnight but I'd guess it would count towards the week in which you started streaming it

I think once you listen to a song for 30 seconds it counts as a stream, so if the 30th second was after midnight it would be today's chart maybe? thinking.gif

A stream sale is counted after 30 seconds of a track has played, so the Thursday in this case.

Slowest out of 5, *hangs head*
