Say Good Bye To 8tracks Music Streaming!

Are you a 8tracks listener from the country outside the US and Canada? Bad news from 8tracks Blog, starting February, 16th, 2016 8tracks music streaming will no longer be able to stream by the international listeners.

I'm already join 8tracks starting June 2012 and access 8tracks website, iOS apps and android apps from Indonesia. Until now, I've 52 playlists with 2185 followers.

The best my playlist ever are Top 40 Best Songs of 2012 with 475,063 plays, 23,817 likes and the Diamond certified!  The next Platinum certified playlist is Billboard Hot 100 with 96,616 plays, 4,708 likes and Top 100 On Spotify have 57,477 plays and 2,908 likes.

Follow me on 8tracks and listen my plylist!



On February 16th, we’ll change how listeners outside the US and Canada tune into 8tracks.

We’ll no longer stream from 8tracks’ servers to listeners outside the US and Canada; instead, we’ll offer the ability to tune into playlists on the 8tracks website via YouTube video playback. Unfortunately, listeners outside the US and Canada will no longer be able to stream playlists through the 8tracks iOS and Android apps.

Your 8tracks profile and any playlists you’ve made will not be affected and you’ll continue to be able to stream any playlists with tracks you’ve personally uploaded. All of your playlists will continue to be accessible to listeners anywhere our content is available around the world. You will still be able to make and share playlists with everyone, however, your personal listening experience may be limited depending on which country you are in.

Later this year, we’ll offer listeners outside the US and Canada the ability to tune into all 8tracks playlists through an on-demand streaming partner’s website and native mobile apps.


In the US and Canada, 8tracks pays royalties to local collection societies for every track we stream. While we’ve neither actively marketed nor directly monetized 8tracks outside the US and Canada, we’re now seeking direct, global deals with record labels to allow our DJs to tap a full music library when curating a playlist; after all, many in our community no longer have local MP3 or AAC files from which to compile programming.

In order to ensure 8tracks’ existence for years to come, we’ve concluded — at least for now — that delivering our programming to listeners outside the US and Canada through a licensed on-demand partner is the best path forward.

We remain committed to bringing 8tracks to a global audience so all can join us in creating and discovering playlists for every taste, time and place.
