DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, along with the major music, consumer electronics and technology companies, announced during CES 2017 plans to support the expansion of the current Hi-Res Audio download market into studio-quality Hi-Res Audio streaming. At the announcement, Rhapsody, Pandora and HD Tracks representatives also voiced their enthusiasm for this, saying they would explore opportunities to add new premium-music offerings to their respective distribution platforms.
