Music

+ - Music Industry in a Jam with Subscription Services

Submitted by

Infonaut writes "AOL Music Now and Virgin Digital are toast. Yahoo's subscription music service isn't doing well, nor is MTV Urge. Rhapsody and Napster are hovering at around a million subscribers, but they're having a difficult time adding customers. Could it be that the music execs actually don't want to see the subscription model succeed? Seems they can't find a business model they like. They're scared of Apple, they're scared of even the Zune, and they're scared of subscription services."

In seeking the unattainable, simplicity only gets in the way. -- Epigrams in Programming, ACM SIGPLAN Sept. 1982
