Amazon is expanding its availability of Prime Music to users by opening it up to customers in the U.K. A year after the U.S. launch, Amazon Prime members in the U.K. can now use Prime Music. And like Instant Video, the service is included in your Prime membership.
Prime users pay only £79 (approx. $124) per year in the U.K. Prime members in the U.K. have enjoyed free next-day delivery, Prime Video, unlimited photo storage, over 500,000 ebooks — and now Prime Music.
While Amazon Prime Music has a larger subscriber base than Tidal, Deezer, Rdio, Rhapsody, and Google Play Music combined, it lacks on size of music catalogue when compared to the 30 times more available tracks with Apple Music or Spotify.
With Prime Music you’re able to store tracks locally for offline listening, and users who have previously purchased MP3 and CDs from Amazon will find that music already available in their library.
Customers who haven’t subscribed to Amazon’s Prime service can get a free 30-day trial before committing to the £79 annual fee.
