We’re invading your living room! Thanks to our new partnerships with Samsung, LG and Toshiba, you can now enjoy Deezer through your TV – without ever having to get off the sofa.
Today we announced partnerships with big-name TV manufacturers Samsung, LG and Toshiba to give music lovers across the globe unlimited access to a catalogue of over 20 million tracks via state of the art smart TV sets.
Deezer’s expansion has been faster than any other digital music service – it’s now available in more than 180 countries and in every continent in the world – and these partnerships make Deezer the new dominant digital music service provider via smart TVs. In the last year alone, around 43 million smart TVs were sold, and it is predicted that this number will rise to 95 million by 2016. That’s a lot of television sets in a lot of homes.
Axel Dauchez, CEO of Deezer, said: “We are committed to delivering a music revolution. Deezer is already available directly via a number of hi-fis and in-car entertainment systems – and of course on most smartphones, tablets and PCs – but we believe that putting Deezer at the heart of the TV experience marks the next innovation for music. For many of us, the living room is the heart of the home, and we want Deezer to be a part of that.”
“We’re now one step closer to breaking down all barriers to music and helping to ensure that people can listen to Deezer anywhere on any device.”
Deezer subscribers will have instant access to all their favourite playlists, tracks and Deezer recommendations via their smart TV. If you don’t have a subscription, you can still enjoy Deezer’s discovery mode, which offers unlimited access to Deezer’s thousands of artist-based and themed radio channels, and allows music fans to browse the Deezer library and listen to 30-second clips of any of our 20 million tracks.
Deezer will be available on all Samsung smart TV models produced from 2011 (Europe only), and on all LG smart TV models produced from 2011 (available worldwide). It will also be available on all Toshiba smart TV models since 2011 (Europe and MEA/Asia, Pacific) and on all smart TV models produced from 2013 (worldwide).
