Earlier this year, we wrote about the plans of Swedish startup Staccs to launch a video streaming service for concert recordings, complete with a user-centric royalties model to divide each user’s subscription between the rightsholders for the concerts they watched. Now Staccs has launched its service, initially in the Nordic region (that’s Sweden, Norway and Denmark, but also Finland and Iceland).

It’s launching with an array of concert recordings including Oasis, Queen, the Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Nina Simone, Zara Larsson, David Bowie and Tupac Shakur.

The launch comes with a price reveal: Staccs will cost SEK 119 a month (around $14.30) or SEK 1190 a year ($143). It’s a bold move to charge more than audio streaming services, although Staccs has a launch special offer cutting its price to SEK 599 a year ($71.95).
