As Apple and Sony/ATV couldn’t agree on the song right of music streaming service, Apple has delayed the music streaming service on iPhone 5. Actually, Apple has planed to have its own music streaming with the new released iPhone 5 and use this service to promote the sale.
According to the report, Sony/ATV, the biggest music publisher in the world, wanted Apple to pay higher fee for each song than Apple was willing to pay for. Generally, a music distributor has to pay the statutory rate that has been set for playing web music, but Apple want to do more things with the songs than the statutory set. As a result, Apple has to delay the music streaming service on iPhone 5.
Apple want to allow people to directly connect to iTunes to generate the music songs and to play a selected artist more times than Pandora is allowed to do. According to the industry sources, they want Apple to enter the music streaming business in another way.
In fact, the music publisher Sony/STV also doesn’t satisfy with the Pandora’s mode as well as not wanting Apple to launch a same service. That may be the other reason Sony/ATV want to put up the price of music streaming.
It is said that the talk between Sony/ATV and Apple still continue. What the result will be, it is hard to give the answer. No matter what, the iPhone 5 has sold 5 million units in its first week.
