Beats Music brings up to 5 people and 10 devices unlimited music

AT&T has announced a new exclusive music streaming service for subscribers from Beats Music. The new AT&T music service will kick off on January 21 and is available for an entire family. The Beats Music plan with AT&T will cost $14.99 per month for up to five family members.
The service will offer unlimited downloads and unlimited streaming music. Each member on a family plan will get access to a library of over 20 million songs. The service will also have a unique curated music experience.
Each of the people on the music service will be able to download and stream their own music. Users can create playlists and Beats music will offer a curated service as well. That curated service has a group of editors that hand pick songs to create playlists that users will enjoy.
AT&T will offer the service at no cost for 90 days so the users can see how much they like it before signing up.

So we can try the service for free for 90 days... cancel if we don't like it... and download all the music we want in the interim?

There's a catch buried in there, somewhere. DRM must be in the songs that self-destruct or something.

The fine print on the link above says that once the subscription cancels, so do the downloads.

When I first saw "unlimited streaming", I was hoping it meant something like Pandora for the mobile phone except with no data charges. Nope. The fine print on the link also says data charges are incurred. I would be willing to pay a small monthly fee to have a streaming music service that does not count against my data. But I am not willing to pay for yet another music service where you do not own the songs.

Yeah this service seems rather pointless. Especially for the price.

I'm so sure of it, I'm not even going to bother looking into it.

Your phone melts down, 30 days after your subscription lapses, if there's any of their music left on it. Make sure you have insurance coverage on it, to replace it!

Or you can just pay $10 for Spotify and not have AT&T. Choices.

I listen to every single song I want for free on Youtube! Steams straight to my phone which can then pipe my tunes through to headphones, home theatre system, airplay through my Samsung TV (with the video too), and of course BT in my car. I drive a Ford Fusion with Microsoft Sync and can even skip through my Favorites using the steering wheel controls. The only down part? I have to add songs to my playlist in advance otherwise I have to search a song while driving and risk death or a ticket.
I will stick with free, thank you though AT&T
