Gary Rudat's curator insight, December 7, 2014 10:04 PM

In this article Adele's manager goes into detail about how Streaming Music online is the future and that people should come to terms with it.

Gary Rudat's curator insight, December 7, 2014 11:02 PM

Adel's manager supports Spotify by saying "Streaming is the future." I would have to agree. Streaming is definitely the future of technology and where we are headed as Digital Citizens.

Jake Lee's curator insight, October 19, 2016 11:07 PM

I partially agree with the article. Personally, I prefer old-school album listening. Streaming music has to be focused on just a song. I like listening a whole album entirely. However, I will not deny streaming is the future. Convenience always wins against traditional things. Is it sad? Well, there are people think like me, so I won't worry about it that much.

With 2013 now behind us we are beginning to see the first full year sales numbers come if for 2013 and the long anticipated ability to assess the impact of streaming on the market.  Until the IFPI ...
Cody Kiess's insight:

"Nielsen’s numbers for the US show that digital track sales were down 5.7% and that digital albums were down 0.1% while albums as a whole were down 8.4%."

Although streaming gives producers more audience, their sales go down as said in the article. Streaming all together does affect the producers in a both negative and positive way.

Cannibalism, defined (in capitalism): the process by which one closely-related, oftentimes evolved product reduces demand for another.  The opposite of complementary.

Ari Levy's curator insight, October 11, 2014 9:19 PM

Since downloadable music has become way over priced new streaming services have been popping up in the hopes to provide an affordable alternative to purchasing songs and albums at a time. This graph documents the statistics to support this information. I personally use a streaming service call Sony Music Unlimited because it is cheap and provides me with all the music I desire. This is a simple answer to an old problem.
