“Streaming Services (again).”

The new recorded music model and bands that are holding back from streaming services.

It would be interesting to know how those Coldplay fans with streaming subscriptions dealt with this missing content. While some headed to Itunes, I’m quite sure there were many who reached straight for Bit Torrent and Rapidshare. Some will now be considering whether their monthly subscription actually represents value for money.

I wonder if the kinds of people who buy Coldplay albums know what Bittorrent is and how to use it. I don’t mean that as a slight against them or their fans, but as a genuine suspicion.
