Apple Music boss Jimmy Iovine says streaming services need to diversify to stay alive

102799758-apple-music.530x298
Jimmy Iovine announces Apple Music during Apple WWDC in San Francisco, June 8, 2015.

Music streaming services are too similar and need to have more original content, Apple Music executive Jimmy Iovine told the BBC.

“The streaming services are all charging $9.99 and everyone has the same music,” he told the British broadcaster in an interview published Sunday.

“And it’s really nice. You get whatever song you want, you get your playlists — but there’s got to be more interaction between the artist and the audience … Sooner or later, something’s got to give,” he added.

He indicated that Apple Music wanted more original content and cited Netflix as an example, which spent roughly $6 billion on its own shows and movies in 2017.

Iovine also told the BBC it was inevitable that Apple would phase out the iTunes download store, as streaming services surpass the older digital format. Apple has previously denied rumors that the download service was ending next year. “If I’m honest, it’s when people stop buying,” Iovine said. “It’s very simple.”

Apple Music hits 38 million paid subscribers

apple-music

Apple Music has hit 38 million subscribers, up by 2 million in just over one month.

Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president for internet software and services, announced the new number for the music streaming service at the South by Southwest Conference and Festivals. At SXSW, he also talked about Apple’s acquisition of Texture, a distributor of digital magazines.

Apple resisted the subscription streaming music model for years as its iTunes music app dominated sales of digitally downloaded music. But as streaming music grew to become the main way people listen and pay for music today, Apple Music ramped up with more subscribers than any other competitors — except Spotify.

Spotify has 71 million paying members and 159 million people who use the service at least once a month, the company said last month in its filing to become a publicly traded company. Spotify enjoys an advantage with a free, ad-supported tier that rivals like Apple Music lack. To lure in members, Apple Music has leaned on heavy marketing and exclusives for hit albums, as well as the crucial benefit of the millions of iPhones in consumers’ pockets.

During his appearance at SXSW, Cue outlined a huge pot of streaming music subscriptions still up for grabs. He said the world has about 2 billion potential subscribers who have both the access and the means to pay for streaming music, but Apple Music and Spotify’s subscribers have only reached a little more than 100 million combined.

He also batted away another suggestion that Apple might buy Netflix, even as it ramps up a huge apparatus to produce its own original shows and movies. Cue said that Apple is “completely all in” on its content plans, which includes a $1 billion budget for originals. But asked if Apple, which has a gigantic $283.1 billion in cash reserves, would buy a media production giant like Netflix or Disney, Cue dismissed the idea, saying the company isn’t chasing “quantity.”
