Aspiro tests new business model in Denmark
Aspiro, listed on the Nasdaq OMX stock exchange in Stockholm, has previously announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Danish newspaper Politiken for music streaming service WiMP. Tomorrow, WiMP introduce in Denmark a new version of WiMP which also offers a free version, while simultaneously starting up a large editorial collaboration with Politiken.
New WiMP gives Danish users free access to the service's 18 million tracks, where it takes users by the hand and guides them to new musical experiences. WiMP not only offers millions of tracks to PC and mobile, but delivers inspiration and experiences that take people closer to the music and the artists and makes it fun to discover music from all genres.
WiMP has local music editors in all countries, including Denmark, where the Danish music editors also collaborate with other music experts and dedicated and influential music media such as Politiken, Soundvenue, Gaffa and the artists themselves.
New WiMP in Denmark is an open product based on the conviction that everyone should have the opportunity to try WiMP, before purchasing the full WiMP experience with access to the service on any device anywhere, anytime.
WiMP also introduce to customers of Danish Politiken the option to listening to music through WiMP while they read their newspaper music reviews digitally.
