YouTube Refurbishes Its Music Service

YouTube to revamp music service, charge more for ad-free shows- Recode

It is now not clear when YouTube Music will launch in South Africa. For $11.99 per month, you get ad-free YouTube, access to original content, downloads, and background play. YouTube Music Premium, not to be confused with YouTube Premium which is something else, costs $9.99 per month.

For its debut, YouTube Music will be available in just 4 countries United States, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico. It will contain thousands of playlists and the official versions of millions of songs, albums, artist radio, and more, plus all of the music videos already being served up by YouTube. It also gives users premium access to a new YouTube Music streaming service.

It's worth noting that Google was previously expected to replace Google Play Music with a YouTube-based service; it looks like that will indeed happen at some point, but it could take until 2019.

YouTube Music is a premium music streaming service that does away with all of YouTube's major annoyances: It offers an ad-free experience, background listening and downloads.

England-Tunisia live stream online, TV time
England continued to press and were made to pay for not converting a succession of chances when they conceded a soft penalty. However, Tunisia drew level from the penalty spot 10 minutes before half-time when Ferjani Sassi converted from 12 yards.

But for now, Google Play Music subscriptions are safe and they include access to YouTube Music Premium. Well, it's YouTube's big music push, something that has been rumored for, well, years now and was recently said to be called YouTube Remix. A personalized home screen will adapt to your listening history to provide not only better recommendations, but also more specific recommendations-for instance, a relaxing suggestion will be offered when at the airport or an up-tempo song suggested at the gym. In the next few weeks, the rollout will expand to Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

YouTube, known mostly for being a video platform, has confirmed that it will roll out a new music-streaming service next Tuesday (May 22nd) as it seeks to compete with rivals, such as Spotify and Apple Music.

YouTube may be the streaming originator. If you don't pay for any of these services you can still use the YouTube apps but will miss out on the features listed above in the price plans.
