Music Streaming Preferences

Apple introduced iTunes Radio nine months ago, and our surveys showed it quickly becoming a top tier streaming service competitor. Amazon is now the latest player to enter the market, recently launching Prime Music as part of its Prime subscription service. To gauge the potential impact of Prime Music, we asked consumers about their plans for using music streaming services over the next 90 days. Pandora (48%) is still the top service of choice, and iTunes Radio (26%) remains in second place. But Prime Music (19%) is not far behind - a clear sign that music streaming preferences are being impacted by the Amazon launch.
