Of course, Amazon now operates its own rival service to Apple Podcasts. Back in September, Amazon Music confirmed the arrival of podcasts in the UK in all tiers of its Amazon Music service at no additional cost. That means customers who stream with the free Amazon Music tier, as well as those who pay for the High Definition quality streaming will all be able to access the library of on-demand content.
As well as the library available in Apple Podcasts, Amazon has commissioned a number of exclusive shows. These are designed to help differentiate the service from its rivals and is a similar approach to Spotify, which has acquired some of the most popular audio shows and dramas on the planet for its streaming service. Amazon has roped-in creators including DJ Khaled, Becky G, Will Smith, Dan Patrick, and more for its shows.
