As we get closer to the upcoming launch of Apple?s new streaming music platform (expected to debut @ WWDC on June 8th), more of the particulars are leaking out. Various mainstream and tech media outlets have put together reports on rumored features, but only a few details on the streaming service have been essentially confirmed by those familiar with Apple?s plans. Among these, 2 stand-outs include a $10 monthly fee for streaming subscribers and a free, ad-supported Internet radio service with channels programmed and hosted by human DJs.
Meanwhile, Variety is saying that Apple?s rumored TV streaming service has been delayed by problems over local broadcast rights. Apple wants customers to be able to watch local TV channels, but that involves negotiations with dozens of different owners, deals that are separate from the ones for network programming.
Finally, Apple also announced that its Apple Watch will go on sale in the Apple Stores in 2 weeks. Up til now, it?s only been available online. According to the Business Insider, the in-store availability should help Apple reach about 15 million in sales of the Apple Watch before the end of this year.
