Digital music service provider Deezer has partnered with Sonos to launch Deezer Elite outside of the United States as part of a phased rollout.

For the first time ever, consumers in Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Canada will be able to access Deezer Elite on their Sonos system.

In the first phase, existing Deezer listeners on Sono will be able to upgrade to Deezer Elite for free. In doing so, Deezer will become the largest global high definition streaming service in more than 150 countries, all offered only on Sonos.

According to a joint media statement, Deezer Elite provides the largest music catalogue in the world, with over 35 million songs. It also allows users to discover new music through FLOW and other Deezer radio offerings, recommendations and top playlists. On top of that, users can also sync all of their past music history from any service to get started immediately and enjoy their music on any device.

"Our partnership with Sonos offers the ultimate experience for music fans, combining the best wireless home music system with the best music streaming solution," said Tyler Goldman, CEO of Deezer North America. "Given our early success, with over 200,000 new users in the first few months since launch, making the service available globally is a natural next step to satisfy the unmet needs of audio enthusiasts across all markets."

As part of the launch, Deezer Elite will be priced at a promotional rate of S$19.99 per month. For new subscribers, it can cost as low as S$9.99 for a full one or two years subscription. All offers include a one-month free trial, and discounts will be valid until February 2016.
