YouTube TV is getting more channels, new markets, and a price increase

Google is preparing a big expansion of YouTube TV content, but it doesn't want you to know that yet. Buzzfeed News accidentally let the news go live early, and the internet took note before it could update the post. So, you can expect Google to announce a raft of new channels tomorrow, February 14th. The price of the service is also going up next month, but only for new subscribers.

Adult Swim's Android app finally supports Chromecast

It's not a stretch to say that Chromecast support was the single most requested feature in the Adult Swim app. For years many people, including myself, have been lamenting the lack of Google's streaming integration in the service. And now, finally, it's here. As of today's update, you can stream Adult Swim content from the app to your Chromecast, and they've even added a Twitch-style live chat system for specific content.

[Update: Pricing] French music service Qobuz bringing 24-bit streaming audio to the US later this year

Streaming music is usually dominated by large names like Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music, but there are some smaller services out there. Tidal might be having a tough time recently, but it's popular among those looking for higher-quality music, and now another name is entering the US audiophile-grade streaming market. Qobuz (don't ask us how to pronounce it) is bringing its high-resolution 40-million track audio library stateside later this year.

Of all the streaming music services, I find YouTube Music the most puzzling. This is undoubtedly because I am not a millennial, and by that I mean I am old and irrelevant. YouTube Music clearly doesn't need me to understand its appeal, because its Android app just passed the 50,000,000 installs threshold on the Play Store.

New Google music streaming service YouTube 'Remix' could launch in March 2018

It's clear Google sees a benefit in owning a music service to rival Spotify and Apple Music, but making it happen is proving incredibly difficult. Google Play Music hasn't exactly captured the imagination, in no small part due to its terrible app, and YouTube Red (previously YouTube Music Key) hasn't fared much better. Fear not, another attempt is on its way.
