The streaming music service industry just got a lot more crowded in Canada. We may not have Spotify (yet), but we do have Slacker, Rdio, Mediazoic and a few others. And now now have the France-based Deezer.
Deezer says they have 20 million users (1.5 million of which are paying subscribers), 600,000 Facebook fans and 300,000 followers on Twitter. The company also promises users access to 15 million songs.
The service launched in Canada, New Zealand and Australia on Wednesday. In a strange twist, the US and Japan are not included in the global rollout as Deezer believes that both countries are already well served.
Anyone willing to give it a shot?
