“Beats Music” To Turn Up The Heat On Music-Streaming Competition


“Beats Music” To Turn Up The Heat On Music-Streaming Competition

As Apple reputedly prepares to extend its wildly-popular iTunes-powered ‘radio’ service to countries and territories outside the U.S, Beats Music is just one of the upcoming all-you-can-eat music subscription services that may see the company want to pick-up the pace on that initiative.

Scheduled to launch in the United States at the end of this month, Beats Music will aim to separate itself from all other music-streaming offerings by providing a service that, it says, will “combine the power of human curation with technology” to “always deliver the right music to you at the right time.”

“All you have to do is hit play,” the site states.

The price?$9.99 per month for individual subscriptions, with those currently on wireless carrier AT&T able to bag unlimited music for the whole family, at just $14.99 per month.

“We’re excited to announce Beats Music will be bringing you the right song for right now on your smartphone January 21st. AT&T customers are in for a treat — music for every member of your family — up to five people and ten devices — $50 in value for just $14.99. Don’t miss the launch, click here to join the Facebook event or here to add the Beats Music launch to your calendar.”

Covering all the usual genres you would typically expect a music-streaming service of this nature to cover; Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Country, Jazz, Speed Metal, Afro Beat, Classical, (and more) – at launch Beats Music will be available to play on iPhone, Android and Windows phone, as well as on your computer.

Play streaming music when you’re online, and never miss a beat even when you’re not.

Apple’s “iTunes Radio” service is ad-supported for those who don’t hold a yearly subscription to iTunes Match, with those who are paying the required $24.99 per year for Apple’s intelligent song-matching service able to listen to tracks on the service ad-free.

The question is: Would you rather pay monthly, or yearly?
