Shazam Expands D2C Effort

Shazam has expanded its direct to consumer effort, offering a subscription service on its website plus other content. In addition to using the service to recognise tracks, users can now also purcase “ringtones, full track downloads, wallpapers, cover art and even CDs or gig tickets”…this involves partnerships with Amazon, Ticketmaster, i-Tunes and Kelkoo.
There’s also the chance to get a personal page at Shazam (accessible via PC and WAP) which will store details of all the tracks someone tags, and will “allow users to build and share information on their music collections online. The combination of its cutting-edge music recognition technology with an online service allows users to create and benefit from an online music community built through personalised content.”
The subscription cost three pounds per month for unlimited tagged songs, and for 4.50 pounds the unlimited tags are added to by two additional products, either ringtones or full-track downloads.
