Ms. Swift's press release stated,

Beginning Sunday, December 20, The 1989 World Tour LIVE will be available in its entirety exclusively to Apple Music members around the world at applemusic.com/Taylorswift and can be enjoyed across devices including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC and Apple TV.

Taylor Swift has a strong working relationship with Apple and Apple Music—the company's online streaming music subscription service. She has also been critical of Apple's payment policy for artists.

Ms. Swift called out Apple ahead of the Beats Music launch for the company's deal with record labels to not pay song royalties during subscriber's three month trial period. Apple reversed course and announced it would pay royalties, and company executive Eddie Cue said Ms. Swift's open letter was instrumental in that decision.

You'll need an Apple Music subscription to watch the 1989 World Tour Live film, and to hear Zane Lowe's interview with her. If you don't already have a subscription, you can sign up for a free three month trial at the Apple Music website.

Ms. Swift's concert film can be watched on any device that supports Apple Music including Macs and PCs with iTunes, the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 9, and the fourth generation Apple TV.

The Apple and Taylor Swift team up is a pretty big for Apple Music. It's still too early to call Apple's streaming music service a big success, but exclusive deals like these sure can't hurt.
