Deezer Unveils Exclusive Partnership With T-Mobile in The Netherlands
PARIS, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Following the announcement of their partnership to promote legal streaming in Central Europe, Deezer and T-Mobile unveil the second market where they will launch a co-branded product.
With the support of the local labels and the collecting societies, Deezer and T Mobile will launch a co-branded offer with localized catalogue and editorial in the Netherlands in June.
Deezer was awarded "Best streaming music service" in the Netherlands by the magazine Computer Totaal in 2012.
Instead of launching a limited free service in these mature markets, Deezer and T-Mobile want to directly develop the adoption of high quality paid-for services. From June, "T-Mobile & Deezer Music" will be first available to T-Mobile's customers in two ways, as a standalone option and as a bundle together with T-Mobile tariff plans at a lower price.
Deezer offers the best music experience for T-Mobile Netherlands customers:
Deezer offers a standalone service at €9.99 per month, which gives customers instant and unlimited access to 15 million tracks from a computer (with no need to download any software) and on any device - Smartphones, tablets, IP radios and TVs…whether connected to the Internet or not. Deezer is simple, intuitive and responds to fans' needs to discover, listen to, organise and share all the music they love.
Johan Van Roy, Head of Benelux at Deezer:
"The Dutch market is very important for Deezer. Together with our partner T-Mobile we will offer music fans instant web-based access to the biggest music library on the device of their choice. Our local editorial team will give everyone the chance to discover new music. Live and breathe music!"
Raymond Perrenet, Consumer Marketing Director at T-Mobile Netherlands: "T-Mobile stands for personal, simple and innovative products that removes barriers for sharing. The Deezer bundles are an excellent example of this market approach. With Deezer, we offer great value to our customers and bring the open Internet closer."
Deezer is the market leader in music streaming worldwide with 20 million users, 1.5 million Deezer subscribers, 15 million tracks, more than 600,000 Facebook fans and 300,000 followers on Twitter. Today Deezer is the first music streaming service that does not rely on software downloads. In September 2011 Deezer announced a partnership with Facebook, an important international step that allowed Deezer to integrate its services into the world's largest social network.
On December 8th 2011, Deezer began its worldwide roll-out except in Japan and the US.
