Deeze StitcherParis-based streaming music service Deezer has acquired Stitcher, the company has announced. The purchase, for an undisclosed amount, will allow Deezer to take control of the personalized Internet talk radio service, which currently provides access to eight out of the top ten US terrestrial radio programs to users, as well as a collection of around 35,000 radio programs and podcasts.

Speaking to Techcrunch, Deezer’s US CEO Tyler Goldman claimed that Stitcher’s existing service, which includes iOS and Android apps as well as its website, will continue to be available for users to listen to programming, but it will become part of Deezer’s service in the future. Stitcher’s content will apparently be incorporated onto Deezer’s platform as a free service called “Talk” at first. Talk has been under construction for some time already, Goldman reveals, and adding Stitcher’s content “will help accelerate those efforts.”
