LOS ANGELES (Hypebot) – Warner Music International and French based online jukebox Deezer today announced a global content and revenue partnership. Warner Music’s catalog will be available for on-demand streaming as part of Deezer’s free service. Under terms of the deal, both will share in ad revenues. France is online with content and UK and Germany will follow by early 2009.
Much like imeem, Deezer offers users the opportunity to create and share online playlists, join a community of music fans and stream both traditional and ‘intelligent’ internet radio stations. Links to purchase downloads are also embedded throughout. While the deal is called worldwide there is no word as to whether Deezer plans to expand to the US or other non-EU territories.
