Taylor Swift to stream tour movie exclusively on Apple Music

After she shunned Spotify last year before thrashing out a deal to stream her music on Apple’s just about to drop Music streaming service back in June, Taylor Swift is set to continue this partnership by premiering her tour movie exclusively on Apple Music.

Titled The 1989 World Tour Live, the film will be available from December 20. Swift will also be appearing today (14 Dec) on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show at 9am PST to talk about the movie. Beats 1 can be listened to via the Music app on the iPhone and iPad, or via iTunes.

Though Swift was able to work with Apple to stream her music – it wasn’t smooth sailing. Six months ago, Swift wrote an open letter to Apple after it planned not to pay artists from streaming during its lengthy three-month free trial period that all users could take advantage of. Apple eventually relented and Swift was featured prominently on the service at launch.

Tim Cook recently claimed Apple had 6.5 million paid subscribers for its music streaming service, which users can sign up to for $9.99 per month.
