A year af­ter Ama­zon started to of­fer stream­ing mu­sic for a monthly fee, the com­pany is the world’s third-largest dig­i­tal mu­sic ser­vice by sub­scribers, be­hind Spo­tify and Ap­ple Mu­sic, ac­cord­ing to Midia Re­search’s Mark Mul­li­gan, a mu­sic in­dus­try analyst. He also es­ti­mates that weekly lis­ten­ing on Ama­zon’s mu­sic ser­vice is sec­ond-high­est among the paid mu­sic ser­vices, be­hind Spo­tify and ahead of Ap­ple Mu­sic. Ama­zon Mu­sic Un­lim­ited costs $9.99 a month or $7.99 a month for Prime mem­bers, who also get a ba­sic mu­sic ser­vice for free as part of their sub­scrip­tion.
