NEW YORK, May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- eMusic, the digital music pioneer and champion of independent label content, launches today as a fully overhauled and upgraded service, offering a complete digital music discovery and listening experience that is perfect for the collector who values music ownership, and supports their favorite artists and labels through the purchase of music.
After acquiring eMusic in September 2015, TriPlay decided to completely rebuild the eMusic platform from the ground up. Backed by TriPlay's proprietary cloud technology, eMusic has been recreated as a home for the music aficionado and savvy collector, supporting anywhere access to one's private music collection and the joy of discovering new favorites from a catalog of over 32 million titles from every genre at up to 55% off retail. The all-new eMusic is now one of the most comprehensive digital music services in the world, comparable to Apple iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
In philosophy and practice eMusic cares for the artist, customers, and labels while remaining profitable. eMusic is for fans who value ownership of music at a competitive price, while knowing they are also fairly supporting musicians and songwriters.
"TriPlay's cloud platform and application development expertise enabled eMusic to evolve from a beloved, discount music outlet to a true value-add digital music service with features and applications focused on super-serving the serious music collector," said Tamir Koch, CEO of TriPlay. "The music collector market remains strong and we now offer a holistic music service with multiple value propositions that benefit the user as well as the artist, with a business model that ensures artists receive fair pay for their hard work and creativity, while enabling the company to be profitable."
Some of the features available in the new eMusic include:
- Free, unlimited cloud storage and backup so users can store, manage and access their music collection from anywhere
- Over 32 million Indie, Jazz and Classical tracks priced up to 55% below leading competitors
- Connect up to 10 devices for simultaneous listening, with players for Android, iOS and Web
- Coming Soon: HD & Hi-Res audio, advanced classical music search, and players for connected Smart TVs, Smart Watches & Smart Home devices
Unlike premium streaming, which is an all or nothing proposition at $120 per year, eMusic gives its users a variety of service level options:
- Free users get anywhere access to their music collection with unlimited cloud storage, plus a free daily music download from an emerging artist.
- Plans start at $3.99 per month, with unlimited access to songs at up to 55% off retail, and range up to $29.99 per month, for the music connoisseur.
"The all-new eMusic appeals to passionate, knowledgeable music fans who are driven by discovery and take great pride in their music collections," said Koch. "eMusic Members have spent countless hours growing and curating their private music libraries and see value in the power of their personal cloud through eMusic. In fact, when eMusic Members listen to music, 80% of the time they are listening to their own music collections. We are proud to give our Members an easy, convenient and affordable platform that allows them to expand their collections and access their music form anywhere – all at a very fair price."
