Deezer enables customers to access music from anywhere with their mobiles and even enables them to listen when offline by allowing them to download albums and playlists. Users simply create their music profile, choose their favourite artists and make playlists, which they can share with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
“Dynamic life of young people increasingly includes digital communications, entertainment and diversity of contents. We believe that this service will bring us even closer to them, as now they have everything that is really important on their phones. With these packages, our prepaid subscribers can now have smartphones and simply download contents, supported by Smart Network. All this places us among the most advanced mobile networks in Europe,” said Dina Janevski, Customer Experience and Marketing Communications Director in Telenor.
At the presentation of this service, promoted for the first time in Serbia, Laurent Billion, Chief International Officer in Deezer, talked about the simplicity of music subscription services and Deezer’s ambitions in Serbia:
“This exciting new partnership means both prepaid and postpaid Telenor customers can now take their favourite artists and playlists wherever they go. Deezer is all about music discovery and people will be able to listen to the best new talents from Serbia alongside the biggest acts in the world. We want to bring people a music experience unlike any they’ve had before and this tie-up with Telenor means we can do that. We know from experience that mobile partnerships provide a powerful way of helping people discover music subscription services, and we are thrilled about working with Telenor to allow as many people as possible to discover and share the music they love.”
