More people are able to listen to the recently-launched Beats Music streaming service today. Part of the reason is that Beats Music this week launched on Windows Phone handsets after Android and iPhone users had first crack at it last week. Another reason is that the US-only streaming service is usable outside of the US if you're willing to game the system.
Beats Music has a license to stream only in the United States, so users outside the country have to look elsewhere. However, if you just want to try out the system for yourself, MyNokiaBlog has a guide of how to get it working in other countries. The guide is tailored specifically for Windows Phone, so you'll have to focus on that platform.
As for the app itself, it follows the same format as the Android and iOS formats. The app looks beautiful and functional, the playlists are curated by humans, and users can search through a 20 million song catalog to create personal playlists and libraries of favorite artists and albums. Beats comes with a free 7-day trial (AT&T customers get 3 months) and costs $9.99 per month for an individual or $14.99 per month for an AT&T family plan with multiple accounts.
