The company reported an improved streaming growth rate back in line with long-term expectations, recovering from a disappointing 1Q. Even more meaningful for the long term, digital service providers (DSPs), including Spotify, finally implemented pricing increases for streaming services with no signs of increased churn. WMG CEO Robert Kyncl called it “an encouraging start” and highlighted the potential for significant upside if audio streaming follows video streaming pricing."
