Apparently, Apple intends to shake the music market with the launch of its online radio.
The company does not intend to simply present a competing product, it has proposed to the record companies a differentiated charging format that, according to CNET, is more attractive compared to market services.
The plans include a simple way to buy the songs listened to by streaming, which would increase iTunes sales and, consequently, fill the record companies’ coffers.
In addition, companies will keep a portion of the money raised from advertising the free version of the alleged iRadio, CNET sources said.
Those same sources said the deals with Warner and Universal are due to be closed next week, but nothing is certain yet. And Apple still needs to bring Sony closer to them if it wants the product to work.
Either way, negotiations must end in time for iRadio to be launched in the middle of the year. In addition to the United States, countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Germany and Japan would be among the first to count on the novelty.
