Is streaming really worth all this hype?

It’s undeniable that streaming is one of the most popular ways to listen to music today. It’s convenient, portable and one of the cheapest ways to discover and play tracks. This being said, there’s so much controversy about the various services out there and a lot of people are sceptical about the financial side of it all. We’ve got a really interesting blog about streaming that you can check out here
