Deezer, Music Streaming Service From France, Launches In US For First Time

in #news5 years ago

Just when you think the streaming market can’t get any more crowded, it does.

The 9-year-old French music streaming service Deezer made an entrance into the U.S. market today, and will become yet another challenger in the ring with Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal–all of whom struggle to recruit users and turn a profit.

Deezer defies the so-called “freemium” model that has helped music services achieve growth in the U.S. The service will be available for $9.99 a month, with no free tier option available. While you can do a 30-day free trial, after that, you have to pay to play.

Previously, Deezer had only been available to AT&T Cricket Wireless customers, Sonos users or Bose users in the U.S.

“We are thrilled to make Deezer available to all music fans in the U.S., at a time when the company is growing stronger and developing new technologies that enable us to deliver a much more personalized experience,” said Deezer CEO Dr. Hans-Holger Albrecht said in a statement.

The company proudly announced its entrance to the broader U.S. market today on Twitter:
