Amazon Music Unlimited just launched in 28 new markets

Amazon have just added 28 new markets for their music streaming service across Europe and Latin America.

It has been a little over a year since Amazon launched their standalone music streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited, in the US. Amazon have today launched in 28 new markets offering up their streaming service to a bunch of new audiences.

Amazon Music Unlimited was launched as a full version of their existing Prime music service. Prime Music offered a considerably stripped back streaming service bundled in with a Prime subscription. Whilst it was considered to be very popular, lots of people said this was down to the popularity of Prime and the service itself didn’t get much love. So they launched a full, standalone service to rival that of Spotify’s and Apple’s.

Amazon Music Unlimited has just launched in Belgium, Chile, Colombia, Finland, the Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Uruguay, as well as others. The streaming service is available on four different plans: $4 a month to stream on Echo’s only, $8 for a standard streaming subscription with Prime, $10 without Prime and a family plan for $15 a month. The new countries will only have 3 available subscriptions and prices will vary country to country.
