YouTube readying paid music service

DHAKA: Google’s video-sharing arm YouTube is preparing to launch a subscription music service to allow consumers to watch videos and listen to music ad-free.

Industry sources said on Friday, reports The Straits Times.

Sources familiar with the plans told media, the service is likely to launch sometime next year.

The new plan would still allow users free access for the vast amount of music and music videos available on YouTube but would allow an option for a paid service without ads, with some extras such as the ability to store and listen to songs offline.

A source familiar with the plan said YouTube is not setting up a ‘pay gate’ for music and would continue to allow people to stream music on any device for free if they choose.
