On Adele not releasing new album on streaming sites

Today is the day the new album by Adele titled 25 releases to the general public.  For some reason her people have decided not to release the album to streaming music sites Spotify, and Apple Music, apparently in an attempt to drive sales of the album up.

This is an interesting decision.  Is this going to play out they way they want, or drive potential fans away?  Personally I will wait to see if it comes to Spotify (my streaming service of choice) and I will choose not to purchase the album.

What do other people think?  Is this going to work and boost her sales or are people just going to wait it out?  Is she going against the tidal wave that is streaming music services, only to get pulled under?
