Music streams - audio & video - doubled Y-o-Y in the US in 2015
"Overall, Americans streamed 317.2 billion tracks last year, up from 164.5 billion songs streamed in 2014. Leading the pack were the typical suspects: YouTube, Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, and Google Play Music, but doesn’t include ‘non-interactive’ radio streams like Pandora. Most of that streaming was free, with YouTube and Spotify still avalanching the space with ad-supported music."
