  • YouTube signed a new long-term agreement with the top two music labels, promising stronger policing of user uploads of copyrighted songs and paving the way for a new paid service after two years of tumultuous negotiations. Universal Music Group said its deal with YouTube will give artists more flexibility and better pay. Sony Music Entertainment also signed a new agreement, according to people familiar with the matter. The Tokyo-based parent company declined to comment. Bloomsburg I wonder if this service will be included with YouTube Red.
  • In June, Google revealed that Chrome will stop showing all ads (including those owned or served by Google) on websites that display non-compliant ads “starting in early 2018.” Now the company has committed to a date: Chrome’s built-in ad-blocker will start working on February 15, 2018. Interestingly, this date does not appear to be tied to a specific Chrome version. Chrome 64 is currently scheduled to arrive on January 23 and Chrome 65 is slated to launch on March 6, suggesting Google will be turning on its browser’s ad blocker remotely, and possibly gradually for select users. VentureBeat I am curious what this is going to mean for the future of Adblock Plus, Ghostery and Ublock Origin. I wonder when Firefox will add their own adblocker.
  • Amazon’s Prime Video app has hit the ground running in its first week on Apple TV. The Seattle-based web giant’s popular streaming app — long available on rival boxes like Roku, Playstation and the Xbox — broke the record for most downloads of any tvOS app during the seven days it first became available, Apple and Amazon confirmed. NYPost Amazon Prime is in over 70% homes in the US this news does not surprise me what that kind of userbase and the popularity of Apple products.
