You'll discover a wealth of playlists curated by Amazon Music experts, including some of the biggest songs in the world on All Hits, the best of UK rap, R&B, drill, grime and afro-beats on +44, the hottest dance tracks in the UK on Dance UK, exciting new rock music from around the world on Rock Scene or happy, upbeat hits to make you feel good on Feeling Happy. There is also an abundance of playlists to soundtrack your day, from cooking and relaxing to dinner parties and working out.
Amazon Music has three tiers for listeners to choose from:
"At Sky we're focused on bringing people the best entertainment experience, and the launch of Amazon Music on Sky Glass, Sky Stream and Sky Q really emphasises that. Fans can enjoy a huge selection of brilliant music and playlists on their TV alongside the best range of shows, movies and fitness content," said Fraser Stirling, Global Chief Product Officer at Sky.
