SoundCloud introduces SoundCloudGo in the US

Berlin-based music sharing platform has recently (finally) signed legal contracts with many large music publishers. Now, in the US, it introduces SoundCloud Go, which is similar to Spotify. For $9.99 listeners get access to even more music but are also able to play music offline. Also, the paying users will listen to their music ad-free. As of right now, the service is available for the iOS app only.
