Deezer wants to help users of its top-tier HiFi subscription to explore its catalogue of hi-res music beyond the obvious jazz and classical content.
It has launched a section of its service called ‘HiFi Room‘ offering 15 playlists covering a wider range of genres including rock, Latin and K-Pop. The hub also highlights the top albums available in FLAC-quality from each year and decade, as well as spotlighting prominent remastered albums.
The hub will only be visible within Deezer’s app to HiFi subscribers (although anyone can take a peek at it on the company’s web app).
We were also interested to see Deezer’s Alexander Holland referring to the royalties angle as a benefit of the HiFi tier. “HiFi isn’t only great for listeners, it also benefits artists further thanks to higher royalty rates,” he said in a statement accompanying the launch.
