Beats Streaming Service Coming on January 21st

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/11/14)
More information on the upcoming Beats streaming music service has been unveiled. The service will launch on January 21st.
The service, originally known as Daisy, uses a combination of algorithms and human curation to suggest songs, claiming to have a staff of music experts "hand-selecting your playlists while you stream." The company's betting that curation will set Beats Music apart from the music streaming competition, like Spotify and Rdio.

Hand selecting sounds a little unrealistic.

Dre is too smart and rich to give a shit about making new music. He knows where the real money's at, and it ain't Chronic 2014.

And this will most likely be just as terrible as their headphones.

This sounds like a complete half baked plan. Unless its cheaper than spotify and rdio for a premium membership and offers the same back catalogue the world won't even realize it's there.

So the only way to use this is to have a premium? Lame.

I'm happy with Spotify. I don't need "a staff of music experts hand-selecting your playlists while you stream". That's why I come here.
