Beats Music Struggles With Low Subscriber Counts, Says Report

Los Angeles-based Beats Music--the heavily backed, streaming music provider spun out of Beats Electronics--is struggling with its launch, and only has subscriber counts in the "low six figures", according to a report today from Billboard. The report says Beats Music also will face new competition from Spotify, which is rolling out a music partnership with Sprint which challenges Beats' own deal with AT&T.
