Audiobooks.com has changed its model for its audio book rental subscription service and is moving away from a Netflix-like model of all-you-can-listen to a pay per play program. The site is now offering two options. The first plan lets members access one audiobook a month from the website’s library of more than 25,000 titles for $14.95 a month. The second plan lets members access two audiobooks per month for $22.95.
Prior to introducing this new model, the company offered an all-you-can-stream model for $25 a month. “Our research shows that most audiobook fans listen to one or two audiobooks a month,” explained Ian Small, general manager of Audiobooks.com, in a statement. “Our new plans are tailored to give these audiobook listeners the best value for their dollar. We encourage potential customers to check out competitor prices – they’ll quickly find that we’re offering the best value with the most convenience, delivering great listens instantly, anywhere, including on Apple and Android smartphones and tablets with free apps.” Read more
