Amazon Prime Music Debuts

amazon prime musicAmazon Prime Music launched today (June 12) offering over a million songs for on-demand streaming or offline playback. The service is available to members of Amazon Prime, which costs $99 per year, and already offers free two-day shipping, access to books, and streaming TV shows and movies.

Sony and Warner Music signed on to Amazon’s music service, but Universal has not. Most new music releases are not expected to be available via Prime.

The tens of millions of Prime members—Amazon won’t release the exact number—will receive unlimited, ad-free access to songs at no extra cost. In addition to on-demand streaming, there will be expert-programmed Prime Playlists, personalized recommendations, and unlimited skips and repeat plays.

Prime Music will work on Kindle Fire HD/HDX, iOS, Android, PC, Mac and any Web browser. Prime members in the U.S. can start listening at www.primemusic.com, and others can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Prime at www.amazon.com/prime.
