Apple Music Unveiled
Monday, June 8th, 2015
Posted by: Staff

Apple today unveiled Apple Music, a single, intuitive app that combines the best ways to enjoy music - all in one place. Apple Music is a revolutionary streaming music service, a pioneering worldwide live radio station from Apple broadcasting 24 hours a day and a great new way for music fans to connect with their favorite artists. Apple Music combines the largest and most diverse collection of music on the planet with the expertise of world-class music experts who have programmed playlists for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, Apple TV and Android phones. Apple Music will be available starting on June 30 in over 100 countries.

"We love music, and the new Apple Music service puts an incredible experience at every fan's fingertips," said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. "All the ways people love enjoying music come together in one app - a revolutionary streaming service, live worldwide radio and an exciting way for fans to connect with artists."

Starting on June 30, music fans around the world are invited to a 3-month free membership, after which a $9.99/month subscription fee will apply. There will also be a family plan providing service for up to six family members available for just $14.99/month.

It's going to be hard choosing between this and Spotify. The early lean probably goes toward Spotify at this point for me. Just based in how sucky Apple's music apps have sucked on iOS. The current one being a disaster.

I'm just happy that Apple bought Beats instead of Spotify. Because they destroyed Lala and now Beats. So what's going to happen to iTunes Radio? Will there still be a free ad supported version? Hope so cause I'm actually a fan of iTunes Radio. More so than even Pandora these days.

On the Apple Music membership page it says you will be able to use Apple Music Radio stations with limited skipping. As long as you are signed in with your Apple ID. It sounds like it's going to pretty much just be a branding change and stay the same. You can also use the Connect feature and listen to Beats 1 radio for free as well.

Where does it say Apple music will run on Apple TV?

There's no mention anywhere I can find of it running on Apple TV.

Would be a deal breaker for me if it did. Very Happy I'm a current fan of spotify and would swap in a heartbeat to get everything in one place on a family sub.
