Taipei-based KKBOX is setting its sights on the US with its desktop and mobile streaming music service. However, it’s got a clear USP – it’ll be focusing on Chinese-language songs, for Chinese-Americans. The company has around six million users in Taiwan in Hong Kong, with 200,000 of those (around 3.3%) paying for the premium version of the service, which offers full songs rather than preview clips. The company charges $4.50-$5 a month for the latter, and has a deal with Hutchison Telecom in Hong Kong to offer the service to iPhone buyers. The company’s US launch is slated for Q3 this year.
