A lot of questions were left unanswered after Beats Audio split with HTC last year, in what has been a bad year for HTC. However, Beats Audio was long rumored to be launching a streaming service, but none of that materialized until the official webpage went live last month. That service has now finally come to fruition, with official availability slated for January 21 in the U.S. The service will rival the likes of Spotify and Google Play All Access with a monthly fee of $9.99. It is being said that AT&T users will have a special treat for them. For $14.99 a month, they will be able to share the service with up to 5 family members with a maximum of 10 devices. The standard $9.99 subscription will only allow you to browse and access your music through web or via the dedicated Android and iOS apps.
The folks at Beats Music are offering 90 days free trial for AT&T subscribers as an added perk, while regular users will only get to test it out for 30 days, which is still not that bad really. However, AT&T users will have to wait until the 24th of January to get access to the service while others can just as easily get the service three days prior to that, as mentioned above. Beats Music reportedly has a collection of over 20 million songs spanned across several years and of varying genres, so they’ve done their homework pretty well.
