SoundCloud announced that it is bringing its subscription listening plan to several markets in Europe. SoundCloud Go+ is rolling out today in Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. It will offer the usual features, including ad-free and offline access to its library of more than 20 million tracks. The subscription will usually cost €9.99 a month.
Listeners in those markets who don’t subscribe to Go+ will start hearing advertisements, including audio, in-stream native, and video spots. Targetspot will provide the ads in all of the new European markets.
“SoundCloud is the first place listeners go to discover what’s next in music, and directly connect with the vibrant community of creators, curators and fellow listeners who are powering the platform,” said Anthony Gabriele, SoundCloud’s senior vice president of subscriptions and marketing. “SoundCloud Go+ unlocks access to SoundCloud’s full catalog and allows fans to take their music anywhere, anytime, while financially supporting the more than 20 million creators who are building and growing their careers on the platform.”
