Amazon launches streaming music service in the UK

Hot on the heels of Apple, Amazon has just launched its own streaming music service in the UK.  This is certainly a crowded market place these days, and Amazon’s mission is not helped by the fact that it has significantly less music than its rivals.  It claims to have a mere 1 million tracks online, compared to Spotify’s 30 million.  Missing too is the entirety of the stable that is Universal’s artists, so if you’re desperate for a bit of Katy Perry you’ll be out of luck.

Yet this is not Amazon’s point: the streaming service is free (yes FREE) to those who subscribe to the £79 annual Prime membership.  This includes not only next day delivery, but also Kindle lending library, Prime films and TV shows, and also selected same-day delivery within London.

Given this the deal sounds a little sweeter.  Offline playback is provided, as is the ability to create playlists.  The streaming service is available on desktops, laptops, mobiles, tablets, and a variety of other devices.

Further details are available on the Amazon product page, where you can also sign up to a free 30 day trial if you want to give it a spin.
