More Benefits of Prime Members for Amazon Music and Prime Video
A few days ago, Amazon Music announced to all Prime members free access to the full music library, a number of about 100 million songs, and no ads, but users only random play this mode can choose, and applies to any artist, album or playlist, but also includes no ads to listen to all podcasts on demand. But in terms of experience, the expanded Prime Music is more akin to a free version of Spotify without the ADs.
Amazon Music with 100 million songs
Please note that Amazon Music has expanded the benefits of Prime membership, but the benefits are not unlimited, and users will still need to open an additional "Music Unlimited" if they want to listen to music as they like. Then, as before, the purpose of Amazon's move is apparently to make consumers think that a year of spending $ 139 to buy Prime membership is "very good value".
After Amazon Music expands its Prime benefit, Prime members will enjoy an increase from 2 million to 100 million songs in shuffle mode, ad-free, and at no additional cost to their membership, and also get access to the largest selection of ad-free top podcasts available, including the Wondery catalog of premium shows, podcasts from CNN, ESPN, and the New York Times, and exclusive shows including MrBallen Podcast: Strange, Dark & Mysterious Stories, and the all-new original podcast created by superstar Keke Palmer, Baby, this is Keke Palmer, premiering worldwide on Amazon Music.
Prime Video is Also in Action
Some people believe that the expansion of Prime membership in Amazon's music rights seems to be more attractive to those "listeners who accept random play," and this part of the user is often difficult to actively pay for music. And more Prime Video quality content is on the way. Firstly, the company closed its deal to buy film and TV studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in March 2022, and expand the scale of paying users more similar to Prime users services, so as to build it into a cover video, music, books, and e-commerce services such as "super members".
And Parrot Analytics rated “the Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”(the most expensive TV show of all time) in the exceptional range, meaning only 0.2% of shows in the market have that high a level of demand.
