(April 15, 2021) Qobuz has announced its expansion into Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland. Originally started in France, the Hi-Res streaming service is now available in 18 different countries, including the United States.
Qobuz launched in 2007 as the world’s first Hi-Res streaming and download service, and is the only multi-genre platform to achieve Hi-Res certification from the Japan Audio Society (JAS). It currently offers members access to more than 70 million tracks.
“Our ambition is to make Qobuz THE global benchmark for high-quality music streaming and download platforms,” said Georges Fornay, Deputy CEO of Qobuz. “Today we are pleased to bring our offering to markets where the expectation for a premium service such as ours exists and is growing. Far from a simple streaming service that gives music to consume, Qobuz aims to bring music back to its true value by offering its subscribers the best of music. In mature markets such as Australia, New Zealand, and Northern Europe, these new locations are highly strategic for Qobuz in the context of our international expansion.”
