YouTube To Launch New Paid Music Streaming Service In March
10 December 2017, 03:46 | Dawn Berry
Two other industry giants - Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group - as well as Merlin (miinf), a consortium of independent labels, are reportedly in talks to sign up.
According to "people familiar with the matter", YouTube will launch a new paid music streaming service next March codenamed 'Remix.' This marks the third time that parent company Alphabet has launched a streaming platform for music fans.
In order to break into the subscription service game at this stage, YouTube requires the cooperation of the three major labels - Warner, Universal, and Sony. In February, the Play Music and YouTube teams were combined, with the merger of the two products actually confirmed in July. Namely, they have been disappointed in how YouTube Red is not music-centric enough and instead focussed on producing original video content.
As of nearly a year ago in November 2016, Youtube Red was only reporting approximately 1.5 million subscribers, a minuscule customer base when compared to other streaming platforms like Spotify, who services, as of this summer, just over 60 million subscribers. YouTube was not available for comment outside regular business hours.
Making things a little spicier is the fact that music channel Vevo's contract with YouTube reportedly requires re-negotiation early next year.
It's unclear whether Remix will co-exist with Google Play Music and YouTube Red, or if the new service will replace them.
