Piracy has always been a prevalent problem of the music industry. Ease of access and the diluted meaning and value of file sharing may be the ones to blame, but there’s likely a deeper cause or reason [why people pirate music or files]. People wish to try things first and buy the ones they love own. This is the reason why the business model of iTunes and other services, which espouses ‘tingi’ or ‘retail’ purchases work and slowly dissipate music piracy. This is, in fact, supported by Alex Knapp’s opinion published in Forbes.com in 2013.
What is music streaming, anyway? Here’s an infographic that details what it is and how it is beneficial to music lovers.
It is crucial though that you find a reputable streaming app or service. An app or service backed by an established company adds credibility to the plate. This is the strength of Spinnr, the Philippines’ first music streaming app. In fact, there are lots of reasons why you should consider this application especially if you’re using Smart.
With Spinnr, you can subscribe to unlimited music streaming for only PhP2.50 without added data charges. As a matter of fact, the PhP2.50 per day package (Spinnr 1) already includes data for Spinnr use, hence there is no need to subscribe to other data packages. Pretty neat, actually!
Now if you wish to purchase a song, you may use load (if you’re on prepaid) or simply charge it to your bill. There is no need for credit cards!
If you’re subscribed to a Spinnr Package (6 variants to choose from PhP29/mo to PhP99/mo, or PhP2.50 per day), you can stream music using different devices – PC, tablets and smartphones (iOS or Android).
Spinnr has a huge collection of songs because Smart has an official partner with 2 giant music labels – Universal Music Group and Sony Music. You can just imagine the plethora of sweet to inspiring tracks you can listen too without breaking the law and while supporting your favorite bands.[stextbox id=”info” caption=”Just so you know”]Spinner PH is powered by Smart’s network.[/stextbox]
