British streaming service Rara.com has announced a licensing agreement with PIAS, bringing a catalogue of 18 million tracks to the platform.
The news comes alongside the service's expansion to 33 countries as it switches on six new territories across Eastern Europe: Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
Each new territory features a fully localised music catalogue featuring both local and international music and playlists hand curated by local music experts.
Further country rollouts are planned for 2013.
