Apple Launches Apple Music in China: Music Streaming Enters Uncharted Territory

Apple has announced they will be launching Apple Music, iTunes Movies & iBooks in China Today!

This is a very big move for Apple and the entire music streaming market in China, which is currently dominated by Netease Music (free music service with over 100 million users and growing fast).

Starting on September 30, music fans in China are invited to a three-month trial membership of Apple Music, after which a 10 RMB/month ($1.58 or £1.04 approx) subscription fee will apply. There will also be a family plan providing service for up to six family members available for just 15 RMB/month.
