OJAI, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 14, 2014–
Digital media startup Skybrite today introduced their new streaming subscription service that gives subscribers instant and unlimited access to thousands of audio entertainment and E-learning programs, all for just $9.99 per month.
Described as the “Netflix for Audio,” subscribers can listen to thousands of best-selling audiobooks, stand-up comedy performances, personal development courses, children’s stories, business trainings, guided meditations, celebrity interviews, language learning, audio theater performances, informative lectures, and much more.
“The audio media industry is comprised of music and non-music content,” said Scott Blum, CEO of Skybrite. “The music side is well represented with streaming subscription services like Spotify, Pandora, and others attracting millions of users. But to date, there hasn’t been a comprehensive streaming service for non-music audio. Even Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited and Audible divisions are still embracing the downloading model. That’s where Skybrite comes in – a new streaming subscription service offering thousands of premium audio entertainment and E-learning programs for one low monthly price.”
Subscribers can listen to bestselling audiobooks like The Hunger Games, Think and Grow Rich, and The Power of Now; revealing interviews with celebrities like John Lennon, Jack Nicholson and Lady Gaga; stand-up comedy performances by comedians like Aziz Ansari, Jon Stewart and George Carlin; guided meditation and hypnosis sessions to help people relax, become inspired and lose weight; children’s story classics like Where the Wild Things Are, Clifford the Big Red Dog, and Goodnight Moon; business trainings from leaders like Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, and John Assaraf; and author theater performances starring award-winning actors like Neil Patrick Harris, Hilary Swank and Laurence Fishburne.
“We love music, movies and television programs, but audio entertainment and audio learning is a completely different experience,” says Max Simon, VP Business Development of Skybrite. “You can learn something new while you exercise. You can get lost in a story while you cook. Or you can simply close your eyes and unwind. It stimulates you in ways that other media doesn’t.”
New subscribers are invited to a free trial of Skybrite by visiting www.skybrite.com, after which a $9.99/month subscription fee will apply. The service is available on iPhone, iPad, Android phones and Android tablets. Desktop version will be available soon.
