According to officials, The service will be available at $9.99 per month, and it will offer a major catalog of songs, in line with major rivals. The company is finalising licenses and labels for the service, which is likely to be launched by late summer or early fall. Amazon, which offers a free streaming music service with a limited catalog to subscribers of its Prime shipping and video service, however, didn’t reply to a comment about its service plan.
