What Music Services Are Available Where? (Updated)

global music servicesAfter experiencing some confusion surrounding exactly which unlimited music services are available in Canada — in part because we don’t live there — we decided to look for an authoritative resource that details which music services are available in the various regions of the world.

We think we found it at Pro-Music.org, a consortium involving a slew of music-related acronyms representing various stakeholders of the music industry (FIM, GERA-Europe, GIART, ICMP, IFPI, IMMF, Impala, and IMPA).

In addition to a list of what songs are charting where, Pro-Music includes a helpful map that can tell you which music services (streaming radio, unlimited subscriptions, ringtones, and download stores) are available in each country and region, using data from the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry).

As a demonstration of just how confusing this situation is, not even the IFPI (the “I” stands for “International”) purports to know precisely which of these services are available where.

“This is a list of legal online music services from around the world that offer music as a download, stream or ringtone,” reads Pro-Music’s disclaimer. “The list is compiled by IFPI based on information supplied by its national groups and is not and does not purport to be exhaustive. IFPI endeavours to keep the information on this website updated, but IFPI does not guarantee the accuracy of the information supplied.”

With that in mind, the IFPI’s list is as good a list as any we’ve seen. As of today, August 22, 2012, here’s what it contains. One way to read this is that Deezer, which is not available in the U.S., is available in plenty of other places — even in countries that lack access to iTunes:

  • Freakathon

    Unfortunately this list is not very definitive. Nokia music claims to be available in over 30 countries, but is not mentioned on this list once? Probably some others missing too if a service that widely launched is missing.

  • http://twitter.com/Remels Remels

    Small correction: We7 is not available in Belgium any more.

  • musicelf

    Nokia Music is prominent in China & Indonesia (both of which is missing from the list)

  • http://twitter.com/ptrwtts Peter Watts

    this is begging for a google maps mashup…

  • http://twitter.com/deckarudo Deckarudo

    About France:
    Carrefour, Allomusic and Neuf Music are dead.
    Orange Music is nothing more than a re-branding of Deezer (startup partly owned by Orange).

  • Richard Urwin

    UK: Psonar: http://www.psonar.com/ The only Pay Per Play music service out there.

  • Mad

    Deezer is available in Sri Lanka according to this: http://developers.deezer.com/guidelines/countries

  • Summy

    Super cool article! If you’re interested in cross-border streaming service, you can check out a new service that I came across two days ago that’s called music.torchbrowser.com , it’s really really good!

  • J.W

    I think I’ll try it out. Hey, thanks :)

  • http://onerce.blogspot.com/ Öner

    jango, deezer, musicovery, stereomood are some of the music services not listed here that are available in turkey.
