Feature: Streaming Music
For $5 or $10 a month, a streaming service provides access to millions of songs and is as easy to use as tuning the dial on the radio, in fact, streaming audio is a lot like listening to radio, but with more channels available and the ability (in most instances) to customize your own playlists.
All of which makes streaming an attractive option for casual consumers looking for music that goes where their lifestyle takes them; serious music collectors (aka DJs), however, are less enthusiastic about streaming music, for a number of reasons.
Streaming is a tool. One of many (and one we haven't ruled out). But we wouldn't want to build a house with a ball peen hammer any more than spin an event with anything less than music powered by Promo Only.
