Whats the difference between music and video streaming services?

How come music streaming services offer content from all publishers, while for video each publisher has its own streaming service that you should pay separately?

Quite different models.

Music streaming pays less for each song. The business relies on having a LOT of songs available to their customers to choose from – ie a supermarket business model.

Video streaming is more exclusive. They pay a lot more in licensing for each series they stream. Their business model is exclusivity – sharing some similarity with a luxury brand model.
