Why I won't buy a streaming music service until the prices go down
But the premium service costs $9.99 for both. I'm currently spending $7.99 a month for Netflix. And I get way more use out of Netflix than I get out of even the free version of Spotify.
Now don't get me wrong, I love music. But I never buy $10 worth of music each month and I don't spend $120 a year on albums and singles, so the premium versions of Apple Music and Spotify aren't going to save me any money. Whereas Netflix's $7.99 pays for itself each month by watching just one movie. Netflix is an absolute steal of a deal. Streaming music services, less so. At least for me.
But if Apple or Spotify could provide me a $3.99 version of their services? Then we're talking. But in the meantime, I can't justify spending more money per month on music than I spend to get movies and TV series on Netflix.
