What do I need to be aware of with regards to the streaming start date?

If you’re editing your release, you have the option to specify a separate date for streaming stores. This can be done under "1. Basic information" > "Additional information" should your streaming release date deviate from the normal release date. 

Please note: Some stores (that offer both streaming and download services) unfortunately don’t always observe the separate streaming date. This could cause your release to be already available for streaming on your release date e.g. on Amazon.

iTunes and Apple Music don’t automatically adopt the streaming date. Please notify us with the release GTIN and desired streaming start date so that we can manually edit this in Apple Music.
