Amazon has added its Prime Stations personalised radio service for subscribers to the free-delivery-with-added-content set-up in the UK. It expands on the Prime Music on-demand streaming service, which has also just had a new lyrics feature added to it as well.

It means customers who pay the £79 annual fee for Amazon Prime now have access to the ad free online radio service, which like most similar services will play a continuous stream of music related to an artist or genre the listener tells it they like.

“With Stations we’ve introduced another feature for Prime members to discover great music at no additional cost to their membership”, said Steve Bernstein, EU Director of Digital Music at Amazon. “Whether customers are on the move, at work or entertaining, there’s no shortage of choice with hundreds of Prime Music Stations to choose from. And with the skip, thumbs up and thumbs down functions, customers can take full control of their stations and adapt them to their music tastes”.

As I said, basically the same as all the others. But with Pandora still not available in Europe (yet), maybe this is the closest alternative currently available here.
