Dear Stitcher Listeners,
We’ve got big news! Today, we’re excited to announce that Stitcher is now part of the Deezer umbrella. With 16 million monthly users in over 180 different countries, Deezer is the first truly worldwide music streaming service, and has been reinventing the way people discover music with the largest music catalogue in the world.
Don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere. You will still be able to use Stitcher the way you always have – on mobile phones, tablets, and in cars. Becoming part of Deezer is an incredible opportunity for us to scale our mission and bring amazing radio shows and podcasts to even more people across the globe.
We’ve come a long way. When Stitcher first started, the future of radio in the new digital world was hazy at best. The iPhone didn’t even exist, not to mention Android! But we saw a big opportunity to build an easy to use platform for podcast and radio lovers to listen to their favorite shows anytime, anywhere, on their mobile devices. Now 7 years later, we carry over 35,000 shows from 40 countries, have partnered with the greatest hosts, producers and storytellers on the planet, are present in more than 50 car models, and have been downloaded by over 13 million listeners. Even so, we believe we’re just at the dawn of a Golden Age of on-demand spoken audio.
We will continue to keep doing what we do best under the Deezer umbrella, and eventually provide even better listening experiences across the globe, combining music and talk. We’re extremely excited about this new adventure, and hope you are too.
Thank you for supporting us on our journey to this important milestone!
Noah & the Stitcher Team
