Germany-based music streaming service Simfy is withdrawing its ad-supported, free-to-listen service from the Belgian market, just 11 months after launch.
In an email to users today, the company cites high music industry royalty fees for the move. A subscription-based version of the service will still be available.
Simfy launched in Belgium in November 2011, nine days before its biggest rival Spotify arrived in the country.
The company's website, now only states that it is available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and South Africa.
