Will Apple Really, Really, Really shutter iTunes this time?

Or are threats to have iTunes go dark simple marketing ploys to boost revenue $ and traffic?

Yes and I often recall the many purchases of same groups/music in different platforms...begining w Vinyl LP's (still have most of original LP collection dating back to the '70's), Mastered Recording Cassettes, VHS, CD's, DVD's, Blue Rays, etc.

Ditched the few 8-Tracks way way back when...and never adapted to Laser Disc, nor ITunes etc downloads FWIW.

Noting the latest w streaming movies/music/etc offers to purchase "owning" digital versions w no Hardcopy...:smt093

I think some of this is related to an update that just rolled out. We have an AppleTV device and on the last update, a new app was added, “AppleTV”. I did kind of a double take because I was thinking what does my AppleTV need an AppleTV app. The answer would have been more clear if I had another manufacturer’s device and the AppleTV app appeared on that.

Apple has said it is going to start producing its own streaming material which I assume will be available through the AppleTV app. So maybe what’s leaving iTunes is a lot of the TV shows, movies, concert DVDs, etc. iTunes carries all that stuff, and more, and I don’t think that was the plan. I don’t know. I’ve always thought iTunes was a sort of no-brain money maker for them but I guess nothing lasts.

Weird as our recently purchased Yamaha RX-A2080 includes Streaming of Spotify, Pandora, Napster, SiriusXM, Tidal, Deezer, but no iTunes support...

Anything branded with the 'i' prefix is part of Apple's shit era. Good riddance.

If there are no iTunes how will scammers get money from seniors?
Every local newspaper has a story of a senior told to buy $1000's in iTune gift cards to pay taxes.
