June 5, 2018 – SoundMachine, the premier music subscription service for business, has launched Business Premium powered by Napster in the U.K. Built on a partnership with Napster, the new premium music subscription blends SoundMachine's robust scheduling and management features with Napster's powerful music programming technology and vast catalog, providing a seamless, engaging, and on-brand music experience for large and small retailers, restaurants, spas, and other companies looking to enhance their physical space.

Business Premium provides a variety of enhancements for U.K. SoundMachine users, including access to hundreds of AI-generated and human-curated stations, as well as the ability to create a custom station starting from an artist or song using Napster’s catalog of millions of songs. These benefits are coupled with SoundMachine’s existing Business tier features, including the ability to upload and schedule promotional messages to play along with the music, program different types of music to play during different parts of the day, mix complementary genre stations to create the perfect in-store audio backdrop, and control music in multiple locations from a central account.

“Business Premium has gotten a great reaction in the U.S., Canada, and Spain, and we are excited to extend its many benefits to SoundMachine users in the U.K.,” said Matteo Luppi, CEO of SoundMachine. “Napster’s massive song catalog and robust programming tools are a perfect fit with our platform, allowing us to offer U.K. businesses access to the biggest and most customizable selection of high-quality in-store music, all with an intuitive user experience similar to what they are used to as consumers.”

“We are thrilled to share Business Premium with the U.K. business world and make our music expertise available in this new format,” said Bill Patrizio, President and CEO of Napster. “Napster’s goal is to create new and compelling user experiences for businesses and consumers with our powered by Napster platform technology; our partnership with SoundMachine has produced an exceptional product in this respect that allows perfect individualization.”

SoundMachine’s Business Premium powered by Napster is available at www.sound-machine.com for GBP27.95 per month per location when billed annually and GBP29.95 per month per location when billed monthly after a 30-day free trial. The service can be played with the SoundMachine web player on any tablet or computer, the SoundMachine iOS app on mobile, SoundMachine’s dedicated player hardware, or third-party devices such as Sonos.
