There’s another streaming service competing for your money.

Amazon has announced that its Prime Music streaming service is available to UK users, having previously been limited to US customers.

The service was first launched in the US in June 2014, and offers Amazon Prime subscribers unlimited ad-free access to over 1 million songs.

At a cost of £79 a year, Prime Music is cheaper than Apple Music or Spotify, but the catalogue offered isn’t quite as broad as its key competitors.

Like every other streaming service, curated playlists are a key part of the Prime Music experience, though they don’t seem quite as specific as Spotify or Apple Music. One playlist we found called “Electronica for Study” featured both Justice and Boys Noize together with Darkstar and Laurel Halo, which is much broader than some of Apple Music’s efforts.

Prime Music is available now to UK subscribers of Amazon Prime.
