"BILD Music": New online music service from BILD.de in cooperation with AMPYA

To press release overview

Launch of the new pay-on-demand streaming service on Thursday, October 17th, 2013

There's something to listen to at BILD.de: On Thursday, October 17th, 2013, Germany's biggest news and entertainment portal is launching a new music service. Under the name "BILD Music" BILD.de will be offering users more than 20 million music tracks and almost 60,000 music videos as an on-demand audiovisual service in cooperation with ProSiebenSat.1's AMPYA streaming service. The service is free for BILD.de users for the first 30 days, thereafter it will cost 9.99 euros per month.

The new music and video player is integrated into the BILD.de portal. An integral part of the cooperation with AMPYA, in addition to the music tracks and videos, is the large number of activities advertising video premieres, pre-listenings as well as at live events. Thus for the launch, users of "BILD Music" have the possibility of winning tickets for an exclusive Lady Gaga concert.

"Following on from 'BILD Movies', we are substantially expanding our entertainment service with 'BILD Music'. It is our goal that users of our portal not only receive the most up-to-date and best information, but can also find a variety of entertainment services. In AMPYA we have found a partner that can provide an online music service which is excellent from both the technical and content points of view," says Donata Hopfen, Managing Director of BILD KG.

"'BILD Music' powered by AMPYA is a strategic milestone to help us significantly increase our penetration," says Manuel Uhlitzsch, Managing Director of AMPYA. "This takes us a decisive step closer to our goal of becoming Germany's leading music streaming provider."

"BILD Music" is also available via the AMPYA app as an application for iOS and Android in the respective app stores.
