When Apple's streaming service debuts on Tuesday, it will do so with a three-month free trial available. After that expires, you can subscribe for $9.99 a month. A family subscription priced at $14.99 a month will allow up to six people to be covered. Additionally, Apple's new Music app will give you access to Connect, which is like a social media site for artists where they can interact with their fans, and pass along news and other information to them. While there is no ad-supported free version of Apple Music, anyone with an Apple ID can log in and hear the Beats 1 radio station, head over to the Connects social media sites, or listen to Apple radio stations with a limited number of skips. A version of the app will become available to Android users later this fall.
For established music streamers like Spotify, Pandora and Rdio, a new kid starts playing in the sandbox on Tuesday at 11am EDT. Only time will tell if Apple plays nicely with the others, or becomes a bully.
