New YouTube Music Service Might Finally Launch
While YouTube's Music Key has been in beta testing for about 6 months, the rumors are that the service will now be called YouTube Red and it will consist of 2 main features:
1. The elimination of ads on all videos.
2. Access to Google's Play Music Unlimited catalog.
This all comes at a price of $9.99 per month. It's unclear whether users who have purchased Music Key will still be able to pay their $7.99 price or if their cost will also be the higher $9.99.
Supposedly the new service will also provide offline access to music and videos as well as background play (so you can listen to a song while working on another app on your phone) and more.
There's no word yet on the royalty structure for artists, songwriters, labels and publishers.
