Another day, another music-streaming service with a plan to win subscribers over. Pandora Media, known for internet radio, says it will launch Pandora Premium next year. 

The service will compete with subscription services Spotify and Apple Music. It will also be ad-free and cost $10 a month.

Pandora’s edge, or so it says?  Data. Lots of it.
