I should add it's a complimentary offer for Premium+ subscribers who download the app before January 2018, after that it will require a Deezer Hifi subscription @ 19.99 a month

Competition growing let's hope either prices fall or services improve Smile

Wow! How shitty is Deezers

Wow! How shitty is Deezers Marketing?

So apparently lossless streaming was already a thing on Sonos and Chromecast! Who knew?

So not only did they do a poor job of marketing it in the first place, the failed to mention it was already available on other platforms in this announcement and made it sound like this was something new

I'm remain surprised there is a market big enough for competition, and I keep waiting for someone's bubble to burst. I can't tell you of anyone away from forums such as this who uses a lossless streaming service. I know someone who a year ago was a Tidal subscriber: he joined following their media campaign and streamed to a Sonos Play 3 speaker in his lounge. But he cancelled within the free period because he couldn't hear any difference between Tidal and Spotify at half the price, on a system which to be fair is of a higher calibre than most people liisten on. This surely is going to be a typical story.
