WIMP – new music streaming service

Thank you. Another music flat rate!

Aspiro from Sweden launches its streaming service WiMP in Germany. The basics are no different from the other services available in Germany (Spotify, Deezer, Napster, Rara, Rdio, Juke, Musicload Nonstop, Simfy, Sony Music Unlimited)

– The usual ~16 million songs from all majors and various independent labels,

– 5, -EUR/month for basic access (only for the computer)

– 10,-EUR/month for additional access from mobile devices
– Apps for iPhone / iPad, Android, Windows Mobile 7, Symbian

(yet?) no web interface but you have to install a WiMP desktop application. Soon WiMP will support music systems from Sonos and Logitech.

WiMP says about its positioning to competitors “We see ourselves as the curators of music streaming” and wants to score with editorial music recommendations for the German market (which I dearly miss until now!)
