Do I need TheMusicLicence?

Do I need TheMusicLicence to stream music online such as on YouTube, Facebook or an online radio broadcast?

Note: If this is for a fitness class, and the enquiry is from a customer who already has TheMusicLicence, they are covered to play music on certain platforms (See the online fitness info)

To play music online you would not need TheMusicLicence, however you may need a licence from our parent companies PPL and PRS for Music. You may also need to gain permission from the rightsholders and publishers to use the music, which may also incur a fee. You can find out more information about the licences you may need by using the links below:
