Music Streaming Service Deezer Makes U.S. Debut

Deezer, a French music streaming service with 16 million active users and 5 million paying subscribers, is coming to the U.S. with the “world’s largest” music catalog of more than 35 million tracks—all captured in the lossless FLAC format.

The ad-free service, which hopes to appeal to audiophiles with audio quality that is “the same or higher” than CD quality, will be offered exclusively through Sonos with the promotional price of $14.99 a month that drops down to $9.99 when you sign up for a year.

With the Deezer app subscribers can tap into the service’s extensive library from any smart device and discover music through Deezer radio, recommendations, top playlists, and friends. As part of its search functionality, when you locate the artist whose catalog you want to explore, you can quickly access a complete discography. You can also select music based on a constantly changing Top Tracks list that displays songs that are trending.
