Do you want to hear more than music on your favorite pureplay streaming service? The findings from a study by Bridge Ratings indicate that many people are content with the status quo of songs only.
Bridge Ratings surveyed the listeners of music streaming services, excluding online streams of AM/FM broadcasters, and many respondents said they would listen to those platforms less if they also included news or traffic updates. “Adding news or commuter traffic content is likely not going to enhance the experience for most users of these services,” said Dave Van Dyke, Bridge Ratings’ president. He added that those users who would scale back their listening often turn to streaming services in order to avoid news and traffic.
