Disney will begin to use its own music library and streaming service in the US
Disney Music has announced plans to begin using its own streaming service, a move that will be similar to the one Apple Music made with Beats Music earlier this year.
The streaming service will be the first of its kind in the world, the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.
The service will allow consumers to stream from their own collection of albums, tracks, artists and artists’ music, and to subscribe to their own music streaming service.
It will also include a music-related app that will allow users to listen to music without an internet connection.
Disney has previously said that its own service, Apple Music, would offer access to all of its songs, while Beats Music would only be available to customers with a subscription to Apple Music.
Apple Music started in the U.S. in October, and it is currently available to iOS users in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the U.
“The new service will include all of the features of Apple Music with additional features and enhancements,” Disney said.
“In addition to a curated collection of content, the new service offers a personalized personalized radio station selection and access to a dedicated digital music library.
It also allows consumers to listen directly to their favorite artists and music through their Apple Music subscription, and then listen to their music on a variety of devices with the Apple Music app.”
The service’s music library will be comprised of over 1,500 albums and over 150 million tracks.
It includes artists such as Lady Gaga, Adele, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga and more, plus albums by artists like Bob Dylan, Prince, Bruce Springsteen and more.
Disney said the service will offer users access to artists like Eminem, Pharrell Williams, Phish, Beyonce, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, Lady B, Rihanna, Kanye West, Nick Jonas, The Black Eyed Peas, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, U2, Pink, Miley Cyrus, Eminem and many more.
The company said that it is working with major record labels to ensure that its music is available to the public and will be available for free for a year after launch.
Disney also said that the service would allow consumers and artists to create, listen and share songs with friends.
“We’ll be adding more artists, including pop, country, R&b, hip-hop and EDM artists, to our growing list of collaborators,” Disney added.
Apple has said it plans to make its music available through streaming services, including Spotify, Rdio, iHeartRadio, Google Play Music, Pandora, Apple Radio, Amazon Music and other services, but it is not clear when these will begin.
Apple said it is also working on an app that allows consumers access to its music library for offline listening and playback.
Disney’s music service is not available for download at this time.
Apple, Apple music, Beats Music and Disney Music are the companies behind Apple Music and Beats Music.
