Just days after Amazon released a free music streaming class for Alexa-enabled devices, Music Business Worldwide has submitted a report claiming that the technology company and the Online market is preparing for a high-definition debut also music streaming service. Expected to be in 2019, the service will coexist with Amazon's other streaming offerings and should cost around $ 15 per month.
Sources with knowledge of Amazon's plans indicate that the company has already achieved a license agreement with at least one important record, and these discussions are being conducted with several other music rights holders.
"It's a better bitrate, better than CD quality," said a source from MBW . "Amazon is working on it as we speak: they are currently checking how many catalogs they can get from each and how they will receive it."
Although Spotify has experimented with higher bitrates in the past, TIDAL is one of the few music services that has prioritized high fidelity music, offering a hi-fi subscription with lossless streams for $ 1
The source is right: no other company offers so many options. If you're a music fan, Amazon can give you everything you want, whether it's a limited selection of ad-supported songs or an extensive library of lossless recordings at a great price. But the sheer number of services is a lot more confusing than it should be. If Amazon finds a way to consolidate all music streaming offerings, it will be really hard to beat.
