Amazon UK Prime Instant Video Users Get FREE Music Streaming

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 (2:54 pm) - Score 1,026

Online retailer Amazon UK has expanded their existing unlimited TV and Movie streaming service by adding Prime Music at no extra cost, which gives the service a slight edge over rivals like NOW TV and Netflix that tend to focus more exclusively on video streaming.

Customers of Amazon Prime, which also includes a cheaper and faster delivery option for certain parcels, typically pay an annual £79 subscription fee and this also includes access to their Instant Video streaming service (formerly LOVEFiLM). A 30 day free trial is also available.

But for the same price subscribers will now also get unlimited, ad-free access to over one million songs, tens of thousands of albums and hundreds of Prime Playlists, which is likely to threaten a lot of rivals (e.g. Spotify).

Amazon Prime Music Description

Prime Music joins Unlimited One-Day Delivery, Prime Instant Video, and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library as a benefit available exclusively with your Prime membership.

Prime members can play Prime Music on compatible devices that support Amazon Music, including Fire phone, Fire Tablets, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, iOS devices, Android smartphones and tablets (v.4.0 and above), PC, Mac, and the Amazon.co.uk website. On phones and tablets with the Amazon Music app installed, Prime members can also download Prime Music for offline playback. Downloaded Prime Music can only be accessed within the Amazon Music app and cannot be exported.

In terms of broadband, music streaming isn’t normally very bandwidth intensive and so this side of things will often function quite well on many slower connections. Never the less users might wish to still be careful, particularly if they’re streaming for long periods of time over a data capped mobile plan or roaming outside of the UK where excess use charges may skyrocket.

    And suddenly the streaming music market place starts to look a little crowded in the UK.

    Not a bad deal. As someone that hasn’t succumbed to Spotify or Apple music, this is looking a lot like a credible alternative and starts to make Amazon Prime almost look like a basic utility!

    Nice work Amazon.
