business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Seattle Times reports that Amazon is said to be "planning a paid music streaming service that would duke it out with Spotify and Apple Music," with initial indications that it will launch in late summer and cost $10 per month.

According to the story, "Amazon already has a music streaming service available at no extra cost to members of its $99 per year Prime loyalty program. But Amazon is well known for experimenting with all sorts of approaches to reaching new customers. In April,it launched a standalone video subscription, even though t Prime members already get the video service bundled in their basic package."
