DMD (Digital Music Distribution) develops and operates digital music delivery solutions and was developed as part of a relationship between Sony and Universal.
In October they also entered into a partnership with Southern Cross Austereo to “create exceptional experiences through exciting and cutting edge music solutions for the Australian market”. At the time they said they will do "more than just music."
Songl is what the collaboration developed and DMD CEO, Mark Shaw, says:
“We’re thrilled to introduce Songl to Australia. We’re incredibly excited about the potential of music streaming and confident that Songl is the premium product in market. It’s designed for Australians, is simple and intuitive to use, enables users to share their music and dramatically enhances the consumer listening experience."
“With unprecedented expertise behind the scenes and artist collaboration, no matter what your walk in life, Songl will change the way you interact with music.”
With SCA's involvement, Songl will also deliver content from the networks big names plus the option to stream any one of SCA's metro or digital stations.
DMD say a unique element of Songl is that it will also deliver video content to complement the music streaming service. This could be artist interviews, behind the scenes footage and probably a lot of SCA video content.
DMD have also today announced their pricing. As with most of the streaming services, there's a free premium service trial for 30 days, after that it will cost $12.99 per month. In comparison, Spotify costs $11.99 per month for their premium service, Rdio costs $12.90 for their unlimited service.
