Austin Rose's curator insight, September 12, 2015 9:51 PM

This article explains that Apple realizes the amount of tasks they have ahead of them to improve their streaming service. It also goes over the fact that they can only improve these things with time and experience that comes from talking to major record labels as well as independent artists, both of which they greatly appreciate as much as the other.

Sajada Artis's curator insight, September 13, 2015 12:38 PM

Apple attempts to to create a new music streaming service to apple products. Apple Music will also launch for Android devices in the fall of 2015. In August 2015 Apple has signed up 11 million people for Apple Music’s three month free trial which started on June 30, 2015. At the end of September services will be $9.99 a month for service.

I believe this is a pretty cool feature, however would people really pay $9.99a month for music when there is plenty of other streaming services out there for free? I do believe this is a great idea to jumpstart the Music Industry however I believe not many people will may for something that they can get for free somewhere else.

Whats going to happen in the Music Industry 

Ayana Gibbs's curator insight, September 13, 2015 3:57 PM

I think its great for this broad caster to have a streaming service. Not a lot of them have a streaming service. This will allow the listeners to stream the music they want to hear. So this would benefit the listeners a lot.

Diondre Ricks's curator insight, September 13, 2015 5:00 PM
