Pulse Locker – A Company based in San Francisco, Pulselocker is an innovative new subscription service that allows DJs to play an endless crate of music with their favorite mixing application, either online or offline. All users are offered a tiered subscription service that lets them stream entire tracks, download and DJ tracks on the most popular DJ applications before they decide to buy, and buy only the tracks they want to keep. Also available to users is a socially-driven discovery engine that provides more tailored recommendations based on user preferences and activity. The service will offer users ALC downloads and radio-style, non-interactive streaming.
Amazon MP3 -
Last year Amazon had launched Cloud Drive (locker) and Cloud Player, which respectively allowed users to manually upload their music collections to the cloud and download and stream over their connected devices. These initial services did not require a license, however we have now amended an underlying agreement to include various enhancements that do. These include scan-and-match technology and the streaming and downloading of tracks using a “single server copy” method (such as one digital file is used to provide licensed enhancement access to multiple consumers). This service has been launched and is now currently available in Europe, the United States and Japan. There will be three tiers of access available to customers, including limited introductory and premium services. In addition, Amazon has launched its MP3 download stores in Italy, Spain and Portugal.
XBox Music -
Microsoft are winding down the Zune brand and re-launching the service globally as Xbox Music. The re-launch represents Microsoft’s move to make the games console the entertainment hub of the home, a move that is similar to Sony PlayStation with their Music Unlimited service, allowing customers to consume music the way they want. The revamped service will offer free-to-user advertising-funded streaming, a single-tier dual subscription streaming service, a scan-and-match locker service and MP3 downloads. On launch the service will only be available on Windows OS and the Xbox console, however it is expected the service will be available cross-platform in approximately 6 months. The potential game changer with the new Xbox service is that it will be pre-installed on all Windows 8 operating systems.
