Spotify exec looks to expand TV streaming company

Spotify exec looks to expand TV streaming company | E-Music ! | Scoop.it
Ken Parks, the former Spotify content boss who ventured into the streaming TV field, appears to be carving something of a niche for his Pluto TV.

Parks told us the company now counts 4 million monthly active users.

The Philly native has been in the job just over a year, doubling the number of users in that time.

Pluto TV streams Bloomberg TV, Sky, NBC News and content from CNET, People, The Onion and hightlights from “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Parks told On the Money over lunch at Michael’s that he hopes that 100 channels of free content can lure people to trade up to a paid version over time.

iHeartMedia to launch paid music-streaming service: sources

iHeartMedia to launch paid music-streaming service: sources | E-Music ! | Scoop.it
Terrestrial radio giant iHeartMedia will announce this week the launch of a major paid streaming service, The Post has learned.

The paid streaming service, the first of its kind for a traditional radio outfit, will include a $5-a-month ad-free radio station and a $10-a-month on-demand music service, according to people familiar with iHeartMedia’s plans.

IHeartMedia Chief Executive Bob Pittman is expected to make the announcement during the company’s music festival in Las Vegas this week, sources said.

While the service is close to being announced, iHeart must still secure music licenses before it begins.

The moves come as Pandora recently took the wraps off its $5 service and Amazon is expected to do the same for owners of its Echo device.

Pittman’s company, however, is planning to build different functionality for its $5-per-month service, including off-line play, sources said.

By jumping into the paid streaming game, iHeart will get a toehold in the lucrative subscription business and a direct credit card relationship with its listeners.

Digital music subscriptions rose by 50 percent last year, and paid streaming is set to grow from $2.2 billion in 2015 to $12.7 billion by 2020.

“It is so clear that digital is everything in radio and in streaming,” said a source familiar with iHeart’s plans.

The San Antonio, Texas-based company has already built a sizable digital business with its iHeartRadio app that lets consumers stream the company’s 850 radio stations — which is expected to continue when the paid service is introduced.

The radio giant, however, has been figuring out how to navigate a more mobile digital music world that requires it to pay for a music on less favorable terms than its current terrestrial business, which reeled in $6.24 billion in revenue in 2015.

The paid streaming service will require new licenses from the major labels, and iHeart is negotiating directly with those, sources said, rather than opting for statutory radio licenses.

“Radio has underinvested in digital. I’m very impressed with iHeart services, and although they haven’t announced anything in response to Pandora, I’ve got to believe they are feeling the heat of competition, especially in the car, which has been the one area they have enjoyed exclusive positioning,” Larry Miller, a director at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, told The Post.

The terrestrial radio business has been in turmoil in recent years as streaming services, including Pandora, Spotify and Apple, steal away listeners. IHeart has the additional issue of $21 billion in debt and stagnant revenue over the six months ended June 30.

IHeart shares have fallen 76 percent over the past year. They closed Monday at $1.22, down 6.2 percent.

At rival Cumulus Media, shares have dipped 63 percent in the past 12 months.

CBS Radio, meanwhile, is on track to be spun off from its parent company.

The $5 fee is a lot easier for customers to handle than $10 a month, and is seen as “a gateway to get people to trade up to the $10-per-month services,” said one source.

IHeart had no comment on its streaming plans.

Spotify Is Perfecting the Art of the Playlist

Spotify Is Perfecting the Art of the Playlist | E-Music ! | Scoop.it
The company is in contract negotiations with the three biggest labels, Universal Music, Sony, and Warner Music Group. They take issue with Spotify’s free, ad-supported tier, which doesn’t compensate them as richly as its paid-subscription one that has 40 million users. But Spotify needs all the users it can get, because it hopes to go public soon. The more it can mint its own stars, the less it needs the labels’ glittering rosters. “This is very strategic,” says Mike Doernberg, chief executive of ReverbNation, an online music company that works with emerging artists. “The best thing Spotify can do is popularize more artists so it becomes the gatekeeper of consumption.”
Ogle is giving Spotify more weapons to fight off not just Apple but Pandora and Amazon.com, which are expected to start rival services in the coming months. Ogle doesn’t sound worried. He’s noticed that Discover Weekly users often address the service on Twitter as if it’s a friend who knows them intimately. They’re even forgiving when Spotify’s algorithm misfires. Ogle could be talking about Amber Reyes, who recently tweeted: “Nice @spotify you made up for the horrible discover weekly playlist last week. I love every single song on this weeks. #epic #nice save.”
