iTunes Radio: Another Chapter in Apple’s Cautious Cloud Music Strategy

iTunes Radio: Another Chapter in Apple’s Cautious Cloud Music Strategy | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

As expected Apple today announced the launch of the music industry’s worst kept secret iTunes Radio, a Pandora-like personalized radio service.  iTunes Radio is integrated into the new iOS7, is free with ads to all, free without ads to Tunes Match subscribers. There’s enough different and new in iTunes Radio to make it stand out from the pack and to ensure it has a typically high quality Apple touch.  But the prevailing narrative will be that Apple has taken the conservative me-too strategic option rather than bringing new transformative innovation to the marketplace.  In many respects that analysis rings true but the complete picture is far more nuanced.

Record labels reportedly unhappy with Apple’s radio service proposal

Record labels reportedly unhappy with Apple’s radio service proposal | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
By now, you’ve probably heard the rumors that Apple is working on a Pandora-like internet radio service. Yesterday, Bloomberg added to the speculation, saying that a deal with record labels could be reached by mid-November.

But according to a follow-up report, that may not be the case. Apparently, some record executives haven’t been particularly impressed with the revenue sharing proposal. And they want Apple to sweeten the deal before they sign…

How would radio and webcasters fare when Google and Apple barrel into streaming? | RAIN: Radio And Internet Newsletter

How would radio and webcasters fare when Google and Apple barrel into streaming? | RAIN: Radio And Internet Newsletter | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Clic"Companies like Google, Apple and Facebook are eyeing the streaming and on-demand music business now dominated by smaller niche companies such as Pandora and Spotify. When they do -- and most analysts agree it's really just a matter of time -- they could give nearly everyone the ability to listen to whatever they want, whenever they want -- and mostly for free," wrote San Jose Mercury News' Heather Somerville yesterday....

 

f true, this brings up a whole host of issues, some of which Somerville explores, like the impact on artists, consumers' relationship with music, and others. But where does it leave Internet radio: both pureplays like Pandora, and music broadcasters who'll rely more and more on digital efforts to grow? Smaller companies will have to become even more creative and agile to offer a value proposition the larger companies can't -- a sort of "boutique" existence, catering to niche and local audiences...

Apple's iRadio Blossoms Into Internet Radio Market | Billboard.biz | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Apple's Sept. 12 rollout of its sleek new iPhone 5, upgraded iPod Nano and Touch models, and long overdue relaunch of its iTunes stores was all good news to the music industry's ears

 

But the company was conspicuously quiet about its plans to invade the Internet custom radio space, currently occupied by Pandora, Slacker and Clear Channel's iHeartRadio. That initiative -- first revealed Sept. 7 by the Wall Street Journal -- startled the music industry, mainly because Apple had yet to discuss its plans with all the majors, let alone its independent music partners. But since then, Apple has called the major players it had yet to brief, and consequently more details are starting to emerge.

 

Initial reports indicated that Apple planned to cut direct deals with labels for rights and royalty rates, which would allow it to operate a custom radio streaming service with more bells and whistles than Pandora and iHeartRadio offer. But it now appears that Apple is starting with the parameters of a compulsory license and then negotiating waivers to certain elements mandated under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in order to obtain the interactive features and the rates it wants
