The service will initially be launched in France although Deezer, which has operations in 182 countries, is in discussions to extend it into other markets, confirmed a spokesman for the French group.
Under the terms of the agreement, Deezer has created a space dedicated to Disney music through an app available online and via mobile phones, which will also include games. The service will offer classic tunes from Disney and Pixar films, as well as soundtracks from television series shown on the Disney Channel and Disney Junior channels, films from Disneynature and also a video zone listing chips from artists on the Disney Channel.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Jean-François Camilleri, chairman of The Walt Disney Company France, said that the partnership reflected the company’s desire to respond to “young people’s new methods of media consumption”.
