Samsung Milk Music shutting down in Australia next month

Unfortunately, the rumor becomes reality - Samsung will shut down its online music streaming service in Australia on April 28th.

Although before we only heard some rumors, now it is official - Samsung is shutting down the Milk Music service. However, this only happens in Australia for now, but there is no doubt that other markets will follow sooner or later.

Back when the first rumors surfaced, they were accompanied by reports claiming that Samsung was looking to buy Tidal and revamp its digital music strategy. Unfortunately, only half of those rumors was true - the part about Milk Music going down the drain. Samsung already confirmed there is no plan to take over Jay Z's Tidal, and this week Milk Music subscribers in Australia get the sad news via email.

Premium users of Milk Music had their subscriptions disabled on March 21st, and the service will go down in Australia on April 28th. After that date, it will no longer be possible to stream or play downloaded tracks. On the other hand, not everything is lost for those looking to jump in another boat - Samsung has teamed up with Google and offers Milk Music customers three months of Google Play Music for free.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
