Beats hopes to get off to a quick start thanks to a rumored deal it has with AT&T. The nation's second largest carrier is purportedly ready to bundle Beats Music Service with its wireless plans as an "add-on" feature.
Run by record mogul Jimmy Iovine, Beats Music Service has raised a $60 million war chest. As we mentioned earlier, Spotify appears to be the first target. Today, the latter company launched its free iOS and Android app and is rumored to be talking to Verizon about hooking up with the nation's largest carrier. Spotify already has a marketing partnership with Sprint and deals in place with both AT&T and T-Mobile, allowing the two carriers to include the cost of the service with the monthly invoices sent to their customers.
