Earlier this week, Beats launched its long-awaited streaming music service called Beats Music for US listeners on the Web, Android and iOS, but apparently there are still some issues to solve in it.
According to a blog post by CEO Ian Rogers, a number of users are suffering from problems “due to the extremely high volume of interest” in its service.
“Most people are unaffected but our priority is to give everyone a great experience. We prepared for issues like these, have a plan, and are going to hold off on letting more people in while we put this plan in action.”
The company says that those who managed to get in before the shutdown occurred will be able to continue using Beats Music. Those who want to sign up can still download the app and register; Beats notes it’ll notify those new members when the app is ready to be used.
Meanwhile, the service Beats Music is offering everyone who registers this week an extra week of free service to try Beats out, regardless of whether or not they’re having trouble with the app, doubling the original trial period.
After that, the service will be available for $9.99 a month for unlimited streaming of over 20 million songs, unlimited album downloads for offline streaming and no ads.
The app can be downloaded from the App Store for free, or from the web at www.beatsmusic.com.
