February 19, 2018 – SoundMachine, the premier music subscription service for business, is now available on all Dish Network receivers. The integration gives all DISH users access to SoundMachine, allowing any business using DISH to play licensed music at their locations.
SoundMachine is accessible on both Wally and Hopper receivers using the DISH Music app, which is available in either Google Play, Apple’s App Store and Amazon’s Appstore. The powerful music service, combined with the multi-room capabilities of DISH music, offers its user total control on the music of their business.
DISH Music can wirelessly pair with DTS Play-Fi-enabled speakers connected to the same wireless network. DTS Play-Fi boasts the largest ecosystem of whole-home wireless partners, including Aerix, Anthem, Arcam, Definitive Technology, Klipsch, MartinLogan, McIntosh, Paradigm, Phorus, Polk Audio, Rotel, Sonus Faber, Thiel Audio and Wren, with products from Elite, Integra, Pioneer, Onkyo, Soundcast, SVS Sound and more forthcoming.
Having SoundMachine available on their platform gives commercial DISH users the ability to enjoy the best music in their business with no additional hardware required. The service provides full licensing for Public Performance within a client’s business environment in the U.S. (via ASCAP, BMI, GMR and SESAC) and Canada (via SOCAN and RE:SOUND). This allows the user to play background music through the app without having to pay for additional licenses.
“SoundMachine strives to fulfill a wide array of diverse customer needs and have our service be accessible as easily as possible. This integration grants us access to the DISH media hub” said Matteo Luppi, CEO at SoundMachine. “Small and large businesses now have the opportunity to have the best music experience in their business with SoundMachine fully integrated in DISH.”
SoundMachine features more than 300 curated music stations and the ability to mix and schedule music for the perfect sound, directly through the DTS Play-Fi app. Features include:
- Curated Music Selection – Hundreds of stations regularly updated and comprehensive playlists of hand selected music, covering a wide variety of genres.
- Custom Music Stations – Easily create an algorithmically generated artist based station by simply entering an artist name or song from a catalog of over 35 million tracks.
- Day Parting – Schedule your music for the perfect atmosphere throughout the day, whether it’s upbeat music for the busy hours or mellow tunes for more relaxed moments.
- Multiple Locations – If you own more than one establishment, you can link them to your account and manage their music content from one interface.
- All Licenses Included – Playing music in a business environment requires a set of licenses that SoundMachine covers. Using unlicensed music services can potentially lead to big fines.
