“Days after shuttering its dedicated gaming app, YouTube made some more big changes to how users discover content.

Now, YouTube’s trending tab breaks down what’s popular in five categories: music, live, gaming, news, and movies.

Trending on YouTube previously just displayed what videos were trending throughout a user’s country. YouTube said its algorithm takes a number of factors into consideration, such as view count and the rate of growth in views, among others.

Here’s what the Trending on YouTube page looked like just earlier today.

“Disney’s first major move in the streaming wars comes with a super-sized punch.

Announced Wednesday, Avengers: Endgame will be available to stream exclusively on Disney+ starting December 11 — a little less than a month after the new streaming platform debuts on November 12.

For dedicated Netflix, Prime Video, and Hulu subscribers with a love of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that may mean adding another service to their monthly entertainment bill this winter.

At the time of launch, Disney+ will carry an initial subscription price of $6.99 per month — as well as be available at a discounted offering of $69.99 per year.

While it was anticipated that Disney would corner the market on streaming Marvel films, the exclusive streaming of Avengers: Endgame will likely prove a massive draw for customers.

At present, Endgame has made $2.27 billion dollars at the worldwide box office, making it the second-highest grossing film of all-time, after Avatar — and continues to climb towards that #1 spot. Disney+ is primed to make the most of their winning film, lining up a number of Marvel spin-off series for streaming exclusivity as well.

Viewers looking to own Endgame (and possibly see it sooner) can turn to Amazon, where it is already available for pre-order. While no official digital release date for Endgame has been announced, it is anticipated to arrive sometime this summer as its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War, shared a similar release date and hit the digital shelf on July 31, 2018. ”
