Breaking Into TV Might Be Challenging For Apple If It Continues Losing Its Cool
If everything goes according to plan, Apple could eventually succeed at ultimately saving a considerable amount of cash. It is confident that it made the right move by choosing to sign the recent deal with one of the major record labels.
Both Warner Music Group and Apple signed into a new dealing. That is expected to allow the technology company to continue selling as well as streaming the label’s catalogue. It will most probably be carrying that out through the Apple Music service. That is according to a number of people who claim to have diverse knowledge of the accord.
Over the years, music labels have continuously upheld a contentious relationship with the various digital marketplace owners that offer download purchases and streaming to customers. A large number of the labels attest to the fact that they have been able to fetch high revenues from the sale of physical media like CDs. The turn to digital is a matter they claim to have squeezed their revenues a huge deal.
The company remains to be one of the most outstanding providers that have gained great preference from the wide array of the digital marketplace partners. It has refused to succumb to any form of pressure to get it to offer free streaming services. It has been taking the strong stand that all its customers need to stick to either purchasing the songs they need or just proceed to sign up for them.
Apple’s spokesperson says that a portion of the revenue being generated through such services will be channeled to the labels. Neither the labels nor Apple itself has at any point divulged the shared revenue.
An analyst following on Apple’s progress stated, “While YouTube, Spotify, Pandora and other services allow people to listen to music for free, Apple only sells a paid on-demand service.”
This analyst added that it was an exercise of futility for Apple to expect people to simply realize how cool it is. He also downplayed any move targeting introducing features that were not needed.
