LiveXLive Media, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIVX) (“LiveXLive”), a global digital media company focused on live entertainment, has been recognized as one of the top 10 “Best Online Music Streaming Services for 2020” by PC Mag and named the ‘Best for Curated Channels.’ The recognition puts LiveXLive alongside other music streaming notables like Amazon Music, Apple Music, SiriusXM, Spotify and YouTube Music, which were each listed on PC Mag’s power list.
PC Mag highlights LiveXLive’s DJ-hosted ‘Artist: DNA’ station, featuring established artists like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Lizzo, and greats like Miles Davis, as one example of the company’s superior curatorial efforts. LiveXLive’s 1100+ curated channels provide meaningful discovery for both consumers and artists alike.
