Qobuz for the hi-res family
Thursday, June 18, 2020

Hi-Res streaming and download service Qobuz has launching its family plan. This follows the recent news of the financial and industrial partnership with Québecor, the Canadian telecom giant, allowing Qobuz to strengthen its position as an international player in the music industry. Allowing up to six members per account for £24.99/month, Qobuz Family offers more than 50 million tracks including music in “every genre”. The service’s integrated articles, performer and production credits, original reviews, and expert playlists give the listener context that makes the music experience more immersive. For audiophiles that have been struggling to get their families to join the long heralded HD music revolution, the Family Plan – at just £10/month more than an individual subscription – is the answer.
The Qobuz Family option applies to both plans available, Studio Premier and Sublime+: Studio Premier, which allows unlimited streaming in up to 24-bit / 192 kHz, will be free for the first month (new customers only) then £24.99/month for up to six household members (£249.99 annually with no free trial). Sublime+, which also allows HD unlimited streaming and offers discounted Hi-Res downloads, will be £349.99/year for up to six household members with no free trial.
Any current Qobuz customer will have the option of upgrading to a family plan. When someone purchases a family plan subscription, they will be able to invite five other household members to join the plan with independent memberships that can be used simultaneously. Each family member can manage their individual favourites, playlists, listening history, and settings.
