Amazon is reportedly in talks to bring a music streaming service to Prime

Amazon Prime Music Streaming Service

Ever since Amazon announced it was considering raising the price of Prime subscriptions, customers of the gargantuan online marketplace have been very vocal about their disapproval. Increasing the price of a service without adding any value is typically grounds for outrage on the Internet, but Amazon might be looking into a solution to appease its subscribers. Sources say that Amazon is currently in talks with recording labels in order to lay the groundwork for its own music streaming service, one which could come bundled with every Prime subscription, according to Re/code.

If Amazon can reach a deal with the labels, it has the opportunity to become an all-in-one source for entertainment. With movies, TV and music all streaming from one website, Amazon would be an even more dangerous competitor than it already is, but one insider says that the company is having difficulty nailing down a price to pay the labels. We’ll be watching for any official news from Amazon on the subject.
