@schoeni Which was going to be my next point. :) In truth, I think the huge profit margin days are largely over. Now it’s about discovery and building a loyal following.
Hopefully, the Internet will make this process easier.
@joanna If that cut will be sufficient, I have no clue.
Also, Apple will have to convince a large enough base to shell out for their service. For that, they will have to be better than all the competition.
@joanna I have no clue how the streaming business model looks.
My guess is Apple is betting on leveraging its huge user base to get some money in the game. I can only hope they realize that giving musicians a fair cut is critical.
@schoeni That was my question does iTunes have greater coverage than Spotify? I always assumed so but don’t know of any actual comparisons.
Also, if Connect actually takes off you could have a great ‘indie scene’ on Apple Music for the up & coming.
