There are some great apps available through Sky’s platform, including Netflix and Disney+, but it’s always been a bit lacking on the music side. Fortunately, that has just changed with the launch of Amazon Music on Sky’s platforms.
Starting today, Sky Q, Sky Glass and Sky Stream customers can use the Amazon Music app to stream over 100 million songs. This includes ad-free listening in random mode or All Access playlists for all existing Amazon Prime members.
However, an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription is required to unleash the app’s full potential with access to those millions of tracks without any restrictions. It’s ad-free, of course, and includes the latest versions.
Amazon Music Unlimited costs $9.99/£9.99/€9.99 per month, and you can enjoy a 30-day free trial. However, prices increase by $1/£1/€1 on February 21.
Still, Sky customers who aren’t even Prime subscribers can stream a “selection of the best playlists” for free if you don’t mind listening to the odd commercial.
The move comes just over two years after Sky launched Amazon Prime Video on Sky Q and joined Spotify, BBC Sounds and Roxi in the music streaming service category.

“At Sky, we strive to give people the best entertainment experience, and the launch of Amazon Music on Sky Glass, Sky Stream and Sky Q really underscores that. Fans can enjoy a huge selection of music and brilliant playlists on their TV, as well as the best range of shows, movies and fitness content,” said Fraser Stirling, Global Product Director at Sky.
The Amazon Music app is on the app rail, or you can load it using voice commands like “Hello Sky, open Amazon Music” or “Amazon Music” depending on which Sky device you’re using. you possess.
