Apple Buying Beats: Its Best Idea Since the iPad | Business | WIRED

Apple Buying Beats: Its Best Idea Since the iPad | Business | WIRED | Music Industry News | Scoop.it
Apple is finally growing up.

 

For years, guided by Steve Jobs’ firm hand and relentless vision, the company minted breakthrough after breakthrough. When gadgets appeared from behind Apple’s tightly guarded walls, they were so fully realized, it was hard to remember what life was like without them. But now that Jobs is gone, things have changed. Going years without introducing something radically new, Apple’s famously insular culture has started to look parochial.

 That’s why Apple’s reported plans to buy headphone maker Beats for $3.2 billion — as yet unconfirmed by either company — seem like a big step forward.

Sean Riggins's curator insight, September 13, 2014 11:20 AM

This article is about a newer streaming service founded in 2007 called Qubuz. I found this article insightful because it demonstrates not only growth or streaming services due to new companies developing to meet the demand but also that streaming services are aiming to deliver higher fidelity music (i.e. CD quality or higher). I feel this is important because it's interesting to think that at some point we will get higher quality music from streaming than from CDs and records.

Business Matters: How Amazon Could Have ‘Tens of Millions’ of Paid Streaming Music Subscribers Instantly

Business Matters: How Amazon Could Have ‘Tens of Millions’ of Paid Streaming Music Subscribers Instantly | Music Industry News | Scoop.it

Last week’s leak of an Amazon music licensing contract (posted on Digital Music News) made explicit mention of the Seattle-based retailer’s plan to launch a subscription service, possibly as soon as later this spring. Details remain scant, but the document suggests that Amazon plans to bundle streaming music with its other services -- likely including Amazon Prime, its annual subscription program that gives users free two-day shipping from its online store along with unlimited access to a rotating catalog of streaming videos and a virtual lending library for books.

 

That’s bad news for the many standalone services that have appeared over the past several years: Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, Deezer, and comparative granddaddy Rhapsody, launched in 2001. (These on-demand services differ from Pandora, which doesn’t allow users to choose specific songs and pay substantially lower royalties.) As each service has added new features, arrived in new territories and converted free users to paying customers, signup rates have accelerated. Not every company releases subscriber numbers, but Spotify is generally assumed to be the leader; it claims at least six million paying customers among 24 million active users (although it hasn’t released updated figures for a year). At $10 a month, most digital music subscribers pay roughly $120 each year for desktop and mobile access, though plans and territorial prices vary.

 

But if Amazon, for example, were to bundle a music service with its Prime memberships, whose price recently increased from $79 to $99 annually, the retailer would instantly rank among the world’s largest on-demand music services. Amazon won’t say exactly how many Prime members it has, but in a December statement, it claimed “tens of millions,” with the plural number suggesting at least 20 million. That would be more than three times Spotify’s paying customer base, and in the ballpark of its total (free and paid) user base, per its March 2013 figures. Amazon has also said it added “millions” during the third quarter of 2013 alone.

 

By bundling product shipping, video, and music together, Amazon can deftly hide the price of each of the services from consumers, encouraging them to buy all instead of none -- and overcoming signup barriers music services have always faced. (Bundling has stimulated subscriber growth in the past, most typically via mobile deals.) If Amazon can strike deals with record labels and obtain rights to a library of about 20 million songs as other streaming services offer, it may also be able to absorb content acquisition costs at a lower price per consumer.

The success of the various albums has helped get 2014 off to the best start in more than a decade for vinyl albums. Last year saw 790,000 vinyl albums sold in the UK – but 2014 is already more than one-third of the way to that target after 15 weeks, putting it on course for sales around 900,000 for the full year (if sales continue at the current rate).
