亞馬遜在英國推出Prime Music

Amazon的Prime Music在英國推出。iOS系統的Amazon應用程式在日前更新,目前對Amazon Prime付費尊榮會員提供免費的Prime Music音樂串流服務。英國的Amazon尊榮會員費用是每年79英鎊,提供一日內貨送到(倫敦則是一小時)以及透過Prime Instant Video觀看電視和電影的服務。

這個零售業龍頭去年在美國推出了音樂串流服務,雖然確切的數字不易估算,但現在其會員人數比推出的第一年多了一倍以上。

和去年在美國推出的版本一樣,英國版的Prime Music也無法收聽環球唱片旗下歌手的音樂,而且只能提供約一百萬首歌曲收聽,和Spotify能提供3000萬首歌曲的數量相比相差甚遠。

Amazon Prime Music has launched in the UK.

iOS users saw their Amazon apps update last week (July 21), offering the streaming service for free to those who pay for Amazon Prime. The delivery service costs £79 per year in the UK and offers one-day delivery (one-hour in London) as well as TV and films through Prime Instant Video.

The retail giant's streaming offering launched in the US last year, with membership more than doubling ahead of its first anniversary - although concrete figures are hard to come by.

As with last year, the UK's launch comes without Universal artists. The Amazon Music Prime catalogue features one million songs - a much lower number than Spotify's 30m.

“UK customers loved it when we added Prime Instant Video and unlimited photo storage into Prime last year, on top of Unlimited One-Day Delivery on millions of items and access to over 800,000 Kindle titles to borrow,” said Christopher North, managing director at Amazon UK.

“We said then that we were just getting started, and today we’re introducing Prime Music—more than a million songs from bestselling artists, plus hundreds of Prime Playlists hand-built by our team of music experts—all at no additional cost. Prime Music is the latest great addition for our UK Prime members and we think they’re going to love it.”
