    Amazon has introduced its Prime Music streaming service in the UK. Prime Music joins a myriad of “perks” available with Amazon’s £79 ($99) annual Prime subscription, including Netflix-like Prime Instant Video, speedier deliveries, and unlimited photo storage in Amazon’s cloud.

    Amazon’s Prime Music launched for U.S. users last June, and although the company has been keen to talk up the success of the service, it hasn’t revealed too much about the uptake so far. Indeed, while many will no doubt compare Prime Music with other music-streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, Amazon’s incarnation only offers around one million free tracks, paling in comparison to competitors, who typically include north of 25 million songs.
