YouTube, the Google-owned video platform, plans to launch a new music subscription service in March 2018, Lucas Shaw of Bloomberg reports. Warner Music Group, has already signed on, sources tell Shaw, and YouTube is already in talks with other major record labels, like Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group.

Why it matters: It's a foray into the subscription music scene that's primarily been dominated by Googls's biggest competitors in the space: Apple, Spotify and to an extent, Amazon. YouTube's biggest challenge will be striking deals with music groups, which in the past have argued that they have not been fairly compensated in deals with YouTube. Roughly 25% of music streaming happens on YouTube.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday he had not seen evidence that Hamas was operating in a building that housed offices for Al Jazeera, the AP and other media in the Gaza Strip, as the Israeli government has claimed, AP reports.

Why it matters: Israel has said the presence of a Hamas military intelligence office justified an airstrike that destroyed the 12-story building on Saturday. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday that Israeli intelligence had shared proof with the U.S.

AT&T and Discovery have agreed to create a joint venture that would house WarnerMedia’s premium entertainment, sports and news assets with Discovery's nonfiction and international entertainment and sports businesses, the companies announced Monday.

Why it matters: It's a major course correction by AT&T. The deal essentially confirms shareholder fears that the company's $85 billion merger with Time Warner three years ago was not fully baked.
