Apple Music Launches in China.

Apple products mainly the iPhones fetched about USD 17 billion revenue in the first quarter in China making it the second biggest market for the company after the US. The monthly subscription fee is 10 yuan (about USD 1.5) and the family plan provides the service for 15 yuan for up to six members with individual accounts. “We think the price of 10 RMB is hard to beat for all the music and all the sensational products like radio, movies and books,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, in a tele-briefing yesterday.

The company announced Wednesday that Apple Music will cost 10 RMB per month, or only $1.50 US, but not before users exhaust a three-month trial membership. He said Apple’s service is unique for its cloud music library and ability to sync and save a user’s spot in a book or song when switching between devices, state-run Xinhua news agency reported. In July, China’s top copyright regulator announced stricter rules for music streaming, demanding online streaming services stop providing unlicensed music to users. Other music competitors in China include Netease and Baidu, and all are faced with trying to get listeners to pay for the stuff after years of downloading pirated music for free.

The volume of China’s digital music market was estimated at 12.6 billion yuan for 2015, an increase of 30 per cent year on year, according to a report by Analysys, a leading information product and service provider in China’s Internet sector. As the country’s mobile music copyright environment improves, music service platforms will supplement existing content to meet the demands of users, said the report.

Without going into specifics, Apple said there are “millions” of songs in Apple Music’s catalog for China, including local artists like Eason Chan, Li Ronghao, JJ Lin and G.E.M. That applies only if you signed up on launch day, however, as the trial period extends 90 days no matter when you began using it. (Forget when you signed up?
