Deezer to launch streaming service with Brazilian telecom

Under this partnership, the two companies will launch UOL Musica Deezer, an on-demand music platform intended to replace Radio UOL. The new service will be made available for free on desktop computers and notebooks, while a premium version will launch on mobile phones and tablets. The paid version, which costs 14.90 reales ($4.25) a month, will be ad-free and allow for music downloads and offline listening.

Telecom partnerships are an area of great interest for streaming services, and Deezer has been one of the more active in those deals. Just this year, it has already signed on to work with Lithuania’s Tele2 and bought out Muve Music from AT&T/Cricket.
