Ramone Erving's curator insight, January 16, 2:57 PM

Summary: Every day there seems to be a new streaming service and every day competition grows. Cheaper subscriptions, less ads, exclusive music from exclusive artists, simplicity, etc. With all of the streaming site popping up more than half will fail because they basically all do the same thing. So the pioneers only seem to have any future in the streaming era. 

Pros: Options when it comes to streaming services. 

Cons: A lot of failed companies. 

DeQues Nelson's curator insight, February 10, 12:01 PM

Streaming services are like Pandora and Spotify are getting paid million of dollars and it is profitable but the artist fate depends on the consumer. The consumer decides whether or not they want to buy your song or not. Even though Spotify and other music services are getting paid, that doesn't change the reality that artist are getting paid little to nothing from it. I believe that in this generation and years to come music will rely more on the internet and music will cling onto that but the more it become digital the less they will get paid. If music is so easy to get, why would I need to spend money on it. I can easily go to YouTube and look up a song and listen to it, so if I can do that what would be the need of purchasing music?

This article describes the streaming industry as a whole, from its humble beginnings to what it may have in store in the future. It even described some of the smaller players in the industry and compared them to big ones such as Spotify or Pandora.

That's right. The end of music downloads. Axel, some may think you're only fooling yourself, but you could actually be right. At least, the end of downloads for MOR music may occur soon. 
But educated music lovers are keepers: vinyl diggers, mp3 storage maniacs... music download will remain an elite thing.

Spotify Expands Free Streaming to All Devices | Music Streaming | Scoop.it

Spotify Spotify announced on Wednesday that it is expanding its free streaming option to all devices.

 

Spotify Free for tablets will also work in conjunction with Spotify Connect, the company's Chromecast-like integration for home stereo systems. Previously, non-paying Spotify users could only listen to Spotify Radio selections on mobile. Like Pandora, iTunes Radio andiHeartRadio, Spotify Radio allows users to listen to "stations" comprised of artists and genres, but not specific music tracks.

 

The new option will allow users to listen to tracks they select, just as they can on the desktop.

 

 

In addition to Spotify Free for tablets, the company is also rolling out a free streaming option for all devices, including mobile phones. This option, dubbed "Spotify Shuffle," the option will allow users to "shuffle play" all playlists in their libraries and shuffle listen to any artist they choose.
