JAKARTA, Indonesia and MANILA, Philippines, August 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Deezer launches in Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia, followed by Indonesia and the Philippines
- Web-based streaming services gives music fans music everywhere, on any device
Global music subscription service Deezer is bringing unlimited music to Asia this week, as the service launches in Thailand, rapidly followed by Singapore and Malaysia. Launches in Indonesia and the Philippines are expected in coming weeks.
Deezer's arrival in the region will change the way people listen to music. With more than 18 million tracks available at the click of a button across all devices including iPhones, Android phones, Blackberries, laptops, tablets and wireless speakers, music will be accessible to music fans in Asia in more ways than ever before.
Axel Dauchez, CEO of Deezer, said: "We are thrilled to launch Deezer in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia during our first foray into Asia and look forward to rolling out in the Philippines and Indonesia. There is a real passion for music here and we have no doubt that Deezer's strong focus on local music and editorial recommendations will resonate with fans in each country."
Asia represents a huge opportunity for the European streaming music service Deezer. High rates of smartphone penetration in markets such as Malaysia have given music fans the opportunity to take their music and content with them wherever they go and access it from any device. In Singapore, policymakers have recognized that consumers increasingly want to access content from anywhere with a goal to provide 90% of households with high speed internet access, while the popularity of ringback tone sales in Thailand suggests that streaming services could benefit from offering consumers higher quality music.
The launches consolidate Deezer's position as the one truly global subscription service with a presence now in 91 territories worldwide. Deezer will launch in Indonesia and the Philippines in coming weeks.
