Do you plan on subscribing to Apple Music?

Do you plan on subscribing to Apple Music?
Apple took the wraps off its highly anticipated tune streaming service on Monday, dubbing it simply Apple Music. The all-you-can-eat sound buffet it offers comes with a $9.99 monthly price point, or as much as most other streamers are charging in the US, but the $14.99 family plan is where Apple shines, as you can sign up to 6 members of your listening gang for that price.

In any case, you will be able to tap into vast iTunes music catalog of more than 35 million licensed tracks, though not to absolutely all of them. The exclusives like Beatles will be included for streaming, though. When Apple Music lands on June 30th, you will have the ability to subscribe directly from the overhauled app, though you will, naturally, still be able to purchase individual songs and albums like right now. Apple has big plans for its Music service, though, and has folded the Connect social music network for your favorite artists, and the Beats 1 radio channel in the overhauled app - these you will be able to peruse without any subscription, as well as visit other ad-sponsored stations, or watch some of the tens of thousands of HD music videos, all from the comfort of the new Music app. 

This is why we wanted to ask you whether you consider subscribing to Apple's new music streamer, given that it will also be available on Android as a dedicated app some time in the fall (and given all the competition you see listed below). Tell us below, and throw in your arguments in the comments.

Did you see that guy who started that terrible dance on stage when he launched Apple music in the key note? That was some worst acting (of enjoying music & dancing) I've ever seen... Hilarious... Lol...

Apple couldn't pay me to use their music service. I'm perfectly content with Google Music. Now that I think about it, Apple couldn't pay me to use any product or service they offer.

It's PA - Samsung and Droid bots infest this place like a cancer. Pathetic that anyone would vote 'no' to something when it's free to trial for 3 months. Only the haters would do that. I don't know if the service will be good or bad, hence i will try it and decide later.

Well that wont happen b/c i think ZTE or Sharp to be the first to launch 4k screen phone.

What does this have to do with anything? The app is going to be available on other platforms. It isn't exclusive to Apple users.

Why launch a 4k screen phone? almost nothing supports it, hell, so few photos are available in 4k and even less movies are available in 4k.. in most countries like in Australia (that has a far larger exposable income than in the US) dont have the internet access to support or take the full advantage of anything 4K and this is true in most developed countries.... Its like 4k recording.. its simply impractical because it takes up so much space.

Nope, not happening. I enjoy my free Pandora.

No, because I don't support illegal actions by apple. They tried to bribe the biggest record labels and force us to switch to them. Scumbag move that I hope will backfire.

I assume the family plan will allow all 6 people to stream simultaneously. If so, that's a pretty good deal.

13. gaming64 unregistered

Pretty sweet deal indead. Instead of paying for individual people. But I'm already cozy with Spotify and Apple Music just wont work cause I dont know if my carrier has any plans for it in the future.

What are you going to do with a 4k phone & 1810 battery? Since Jon Ive doesn't believe in larger batteries
