4. YouTube launches paid music streaming service

The web’s most popular video sharing website YouTube has launched a paid music streaming service. Posing a threat to Spotify, YouTube is starting a subscription service that allows users to stream ad-free music videos and to download them for offline use for £9.99 per month.
