Yet another price increase from Deezer. Was $9.99 a year or so ago and now 13.99. I do not think the sound is much different and I am more satisfied paying $9.99 a month with the quality available. I feel the price increase is being forced on its users without a significant gain in quality.

Hey @wtarran Deezer have been changing their subscriptions for the last six months or so and now include HiFi as part of the premium package in many countries. To some people it has led to a reduction in fees, but others sadly more. The only thing I could suggest is if you want to stay with Deezer, perhaps look at the annual subscriptions to see if you could save that way.

Hey Deezer, 

We can understand prices increases if they fall in a reasonable / common sense margin. I just got an email where you casually mention you will increase my family subscription from 7.49 Eur to 17.99. That`s more than double and frankly, it just makes me consider other streaming platforms. Sad...I`ve been using Deezer for many years. 

Hello Deezer,

I just got the same email casually mentioning a price change from $7.96 to $17.99, its like a 70% increase for no visible increased value. Unfortunately after 10 Plus years,  i WILL NOT be continuing with deezer after Decenber 2022.

Agreed. This price increase is too much.

I also got an email from deezer that my family plan is going to increase to $17.99 from $8.99 which is double. I am satisfied with current sound quality I dont need HiFi audio. This is too much. 

Time to looking for an alternative option. 

It is sad that you are doing this to your royal subscribers. 

 

Same here in Estonia. Our family plan was 10.49 € and will be increased to 17.99 € as of Dec. 2022. That is an outrageous increase. It does not even offer a reduced plan for those who do not want Hifi or do not have devices that make Hifi audible.

Tidal seems to be an alternative as their family plan is still 10.49 €.

Been on deezer family in Kenya since the pandemic... This price hike is unaffordable and laughable. This lacks consideration of purchasing power. Please consider the impact.

What is the alternative?

Tidal
