Amazon and Audible announced new benefits for Prime members starting today.
All Amazon Prime members now have unlimited free access to Audible Channels, a new short-form audiobook service that Audible introduced earlier this year.
Prime members also get access to a rotating selection of over 50 professionally narrated audiobooks for free.
The Audible Channels feature a selection of original programs, comedy, lectures, and audio editions of select news articles from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Foreign Affairs, Charlie Rose, McSweeney’s, The Onion, and other publications.
Here’s more from the press release about Audible Channels:
Audible Channels also showcases 20 hand-selected Audible Playlists, from essential stories of the day, meditation and commute-sized comedy to compilations on science, history, technology and more. Now free for Prime members, Audible Channels is otherwise available to purchase for $4.95 a month or the equivalent of $59.40 per year.
