Pandora’s $5-a-month option could be a game-changer

Pandora’s $5-a-month option could be a game-changer | The music industry in the digital context | Scoop.it
The internet radio player is seeking to challenge streaming rivals with a revamped $5-a-month service that will give users added functionality, such as the ability to skip songs and play music offline, sources said.

“The $5 offer will be killer for them,” said one industry insider. “Pandora has 76 million users that listen for free. It will have an easier time to get them to pay $5, so you might see some people switch back to Pandora.”

I personally am a big fan of Spotify, and I think it's great that they've removed time limits. However it's not totally relevant to me since I've never had time restrictions on my account.
Joanne Castillo's curator insight, January 19, 2014 1:54 PM

As a consumer, I feel that it is great that there are no more time limits for Spotify.  I prefer Spotify over Pandora because of the sound quality; however, I still use Pandora because of the unlimited time limit.

More on the Spotify debate. 

Joey Glick's curator insight, August 16, 2015 2:53 PM

Spotify, and many other streaming websites, may not always be in the best interest of music artists.  We have already seen multiple artists take their songs off of these sites.  We also have to remember that these are completely legal sites and that they always go under the consent of those working on these songs, and that those on these sites have full rights to remove music whenever they please.

Playlist war: Man vs Algorythm
Beazy Da StarSkater's curator insight, August 16, 2016 10:27 PM

The thought of accessible music and frequent updating can cause a lot of eyebrows to go up. Hard copy records are the sole of the audio industry. With more artist going independent, record stores are having trouble consolidating actual revenue.

Kirsten Gruenberg's curator insight, August 21, 2016 7:01 AM

David Lowery used to be in a group, now he is standing up for musicians.  He now is known for his role with activism for musicians rights, and has taken on the streaming industry.  David Lowery has filed a class action copyright infringement lawsuit against Spottify for failing to secure the rights from artists or their publishers and that makes Spotify potentially responsible for approximately $150 million in royalties. David Lowery wants to make the business of downloads fair to the artist and or publishers.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Streaming Services,  But Were Afraid to Ask

Wes Ottem's curator insight, December 11, 2013 7:08 PM

This article shows some numbers detailing how low the compensation has become, 5 dollars for 1000 streams.  It is harder than ever for an artist to make money from music.
