New Danish music service powered by JUKE.

JUKE has announced that it is heading for Scandinavia with the launch of new Danish music service SeeYou Musik, having partnered with SeeYou and Onfone.

Five years ago, the TDC Group, which comprised Danish telco TDC and cable subsidiary, YouSee, launched the joint music service TDC Play and YouSee Play in Denmark with 24-7 Entertainment providing the technical solution

Since then, YouSee has merged with mobile operator Onfone and launched YouSee Musik - a new music streaming service powered by Juke.

The new service will see both YouSee and Onfone customers receive unlimited access to over 18 million tracks via iOS and Android mobile devices. Furthermore, as YouSee Musik is hard-bundled into mobile and broadband contracts, there will be no additional charges to use the service.

"Today music is consumed in very large doses via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, so we are thrilled that we can now offer a state-of-the-art music service to our broadband and mobile customers,“ said Anders Blauenfeldt, senior vice president, YouSee.

The YouSee Musik service is designed to offer optimised audio quality, featuring the Dolby Pulse format, an audio codec specifically developed to deliver high sound quality at low bit rates.

Meanwhile, the app automatically detects if a smartphone or tablet is connected to a YouSee broadband connection, meaning users do not have to login access the music. Additionally, music can be saved automatically on the device, allowing you to take your music collection on the road and offline.

"YouSee Musik is a very exciting new entry into the Scandinavian streaming music market for JUKE. YouSee and TDC have been ground-breaking partners of 24-7 Entertainment for many years. Together, we jointly pioneered an important change in how music is consumed, so we are excited that YouSee chose our unique JUKE experience for their customers", said Frank Taubert, CEO and co-founder, 24-7 Entertainment/JUKE.
