Apple Wants to Relaunch Beats Music With a Lower Subscription Price

Posted by · 7063 views
Apple wants to relaunch Beats Music with a lower subscription price and it's asking labels to cut the price in half, reports Re/code.

The logic of Apple’s argument, relayed by people who’ve heard the pitch secondhand: Apple’s best iTunes buyers spend about $60 a year on downloaded music — $5 a month. So if subscription services dropped that low, any download buyers that switched over to the streaming model would generate just as much revenue for the music labels. And, more important, the market of potential subscribers would get much larger.

Re/code doesn't believe that labels will get on board with a 50% price cut; even though, Spotify has just negotiated such a deal for additional family members. However, its likely that they would consider a smaller cut. Perhaps to $8/month.

Apple may also be planning to rebrand the Beats Music service in February, presumably timed to the Grammy Awards, which are being held on February 8th.

I have seen many companies team up with Apple only to be bent over in the end.

Tim wants the labels to take a 50% price cut on their media while Apple maintains their prices (read profits) on hardware.

I seen so many companies left not heir own bend for defeated taste ending up as usual. Mr. Dung wants wants to keep the same worthless crap and same style with stretched looks while making it the cheapest way possible like the specs. Seems to always be working for someone going after almighty products.
