Shelly Palmer Radio Report – June 20, 2014

Your Amazon Prime subscription just got even more bang for its buck. Amazon recently launched its music streaming service, Prime Music. Included in an Amazon Prime subscription, Prime Music includes access to more than one million songs, as well as playlists based around artists, genres, moods and activities. Prime Music also lets you create your own playlists and save tracks to listen to offline. Amazon was already a major digital music player with Amazon mp3 and its cloud music storage, but Prime Music is Amazon’s first attempt at a music subscription service. The service pales in comparison to Spotify and its more than 25 million tracks, but a rivalry was never the point. Amazon says it launched Prime Music to give the annual Prime membership more value, which offers free two-day shipping, the Amazon Instant Video library and the Amazon Kindle Lending Library for $99 per year. Prime Music is now available to Prime members for free. If you don’t pay for Prime, you can try out Prime Music for 30 days for free.
