New Prime Membership Benefit: Audible Channels (and some Audiobooks)

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, then your membership just became a little more valuable. Amazon prime now includes free access to Audible channels, which includes Original Audible Series, curated playlists, and a rotating list of about 50 books.

I am one of those poor slobs who has a work commute, in my case it’s up to 40 minutes a day each direction, and long ago I started using the time to listen to podcasts and audiobooks, but I’ve never taken the plunge and signed up for an audible subscription.

I am, however, a long time prime member, and I’ll have to say, I see this as a huge plus. I’m always looking for more great content to make the commute go faster.

Audible channels were rolled out in July, and are available to non-prime subscribers for $4.95 a month, or free to audible members.

It isn’t obvious how often the list of 50 books will get rotated, I would guess once a month. Of course, I’m also interested to find out if they have any mechanism to let listeners know that a book will no longer be available after some date, I would hate to start listening to a book and have it made unavailable half way through.

To access the benefit you’ll need the mobile Audible App, which you can get from your friendly neighborhood app store.

Hopefully the ColdFire Trilogy will be available soon 😉
