The way we purchase media content has changed dramatically in recent years as digital downloads are taking over. Consumers now purchase movies and music like never before with new options coming all the time. Now maker of quality audio equipment Pure announces a new music streaming service.
The new subscription service will go up against the likes of Spotify and Deezer, and according to TechRadar is simply called Pure Music. When it is available users will have access via smartphones, PCs or Macs and even any Pure internet radio to more than 15 million music tracks.
The service will cost subscribers only £4.99 per month and will use 7Digital’s streaming engine, and will be cloud based. The company stressed there will be a big variety of music available to users ranging from contemporary folk to Beyonce.
Another feature of the service will be the tagging engine that will allow users to discover new music via recommendations, and there will also be a comprehensive search feature. The tagging feature will allow users to tag a track that is playing on any Pure internet radio.
This will save the track onto your Pure lounge account to be enjoyed later online, and explore the artists back catalogue. There will also be social media sharing available as well as the chance to purchase music. Subscribers will able to use their smartphones via a free iPhone app with an Android version to follow shortly.
There won’t be any caching service available though so there will be no offline playlists. This is probably why the monthly price is a lot lower than Spotify. It is expected to eventually offer similar services to Spotify though. The service is expected to launch in the US as well as the UK with a December release date slated.
