If it didn't require a subscription then I would listen to it. There's no way in hell I'm paying to listen to the fucking radio!

Problem is Google snatched everyone up by adding YouTube Red to the Play Music.

That and normies just use spotify anyways. This makes hardly any sense though, why would you choose anything but Apple music unless you are a hardcore Google user?

Beats 1 doesn't require a subscription to listen to it, but it's not going to pay for itself.

I tried Apple Music.

iTunes interface is full-retard.

If you're in local library mode, search won't bring up streamable music on Apple Music.

If you're in iTunes Store mode, search will ask you to buy songs to listen to them.

You have to be in Apple Music mode in order for the search to actually bring up streamable tunes.

When you're in Apple Music mode, and you search for a track that's in your library but not on Apple Music (several labels like Drag City opted out of streaming sites), it will say "not found" instead of directing you to the track in your local library.

It's a complete mess.

>Beats 1 doesn't require a subscription to listen to it

Not true. I downloaded the app to my Android phone and it needed me to sign in to listen. Fuck that shit. I can listen to the latest club/house/dnb/idm music for free from the BeatPort app and if I want the latest up and coming artists or rap etc I either use SoundCloud or NetEase Chinese app.

Did they really think they could kill off Spotify?

Well I wonder how other radio stations make money mmmmmm
>>
>>51405231
Ads, which Beats 1 doesn't have. They rely on Apple Music subscriptions.
>>
>>51405231
BBC radio is free
>>
>>51405257
Isn't the BBC funded by British taxes? I'm not saying that's an unreasonable way of doing things, but don't make it out like this just magically happens or self-sustains.

>>51405265
License fee.

I tried the free trial of Apple Music. The UI is horrible compared to spotify. Beats radio played Bieber and Drake. The whole Apple Music store seemed to be pushing Dr Dre and the Game on me for some raisin. I quickly cancelled and never looekd back.
