YouTube’s subscription music service delayed, eyes early 2014 launch


Remember the rumored YouTube subscription music service that was reported in October? Well, it’s been delayed. According to AllThingsD, sources close to the situation say that the service will launch in the first quarter of 2014. It was believed that the service had a chance to launch by the end of this year. YouTube has all of the music licenses ready to go, but the company is internally unhappy with the product thus far. Apparently they are trying to find “the best way to integrate user-generated content, like lipsyncs and mashups, along with conventional recordings and videos.” Upon launching, Google may have to decide how to differentiate this service from Google Play Music All Access. Until an official announcement, we’ll keep a lookout for any other updates.
