What are partners?
Partners are the Digital Service Providers that manage online platforms where Symphonic distributes music and video content like iTunes, Spotify, or Amazon. Most customers know them as music stores and streaming services. We refer to them as our partners or DSPs.
List of partners

Many retailers and streaming providers are handled by white label providers. These providers work with many different retailers and streaming platforms so, we may distribute to one partner that handles 100+. iTunes and Spotify operate in over 100 territories, so we consider these partners to be multi-regional.
White label partners
These are indirect partners of Symphonic. For instance, when you select 7Digital as a partner, your release will be delivered to 7Digital as well as their partners. The partners that provide content to these indirect partners are called white label providers. A white label provider is a Digital Service Provider that handles multiple services under them.
Am I guaranteed to be on every partner?
Every partner we work with is different. Some need to approve your music before they add it to their store or streaming platform. Others aren't streaming providers or stores but rather work like radio stations and focus on curated experiences. A curated experience means that we'll deliver content, and their team, whether it be human or algorithmic, will preview and decide if the content will make it onto their platform.
At Symphonic, we will work towards pitching your material to these platforms, but ultimately it is up to them to get your material onto their platform.
