    Default Sources: Apple Planning Online Radio Service for 2013


    Look out Pandora. 2013 may bring with it a new venture from Apple. If sources close to the rumored project are correct, Apple is currently in talks with the top music labels negotiating a deal that would allow Apple to launch its own dedicated digital radio service as soon as early 2013.

    The service, which would be advertising-supported, has been rumored for months. But according to a new report published Thursday by Bloomberg, the launch of this planned service could come much sooner than most originally expected.

    Talks are centered in part around how to share ad revenue and a deal could be reached by mid-November, with Apple starting a service within the first three months of 2013, said the people, who asked not to be named because discussions are still in progress.
    Since the start of fall, executives from the likes of Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and Sony Corp.’s music division have all met with Apple executives in Cupertino. Apple, which is already the the world’s biggest music retailer, purportedly wants listeners "to be able to buy tracks as music streams or revisit what they’ve heard in auto-generated playlists."

    Isn't the term "online radio" kinda silly? It's not radio afterall, either in technical terms or functionality.
    A radio station plays music based on what the DJ decides, mostly. This would be unlimited music streaming.
    Yeah nitpicking I know :-)

    I believe it's called radio because of the type of frequency it uses.

    So yes calling it radio is not technically right. But same concept, but you are the Dj
