Hey, Alexa! Please Play TuneIn Premium Content


It’s one of the world’s most-accessed live streaming audio services and in recent months has put its PR in overdrive as it establishes itself in the U.S. as a key access point for broadcast radio.

Now, it is making its premium audio offerings available by simply saying “Hey, Alexa!” to an Amazon-branded smart speaker.

As of today, TuneInPremium can be heard across all Amazon Alexa-enabled devices. This includes live sports, commercial-free news, and commercial-free music.

The timing coincides with the recent start of the 2022 Major League Baseball season.

For those with an Alexa device who aren’t premium users of TuneIn, a three-month introductory free trial offer is being extended upon first enabling TuneIn Premium. TuneIn subscribers pay $9.99 per month following the trial period.

TuneIn CEO Richard Stern commented, “TuneIn aims to be anywhere listening is occurring. In launching TuneIn Premium on Alexa, we deliver on this mission and enable TuneIn and Alexa customers easy access to an expansive catalog of premium content to stay well informed and entertained. This is just one of the many developments we have in our product pipeline in the smart home device space as we look ahead. Through this collaboration with Alexa, listeners can easily listen to their favorite TuneIn Premium shows and stations with a simple voice command.”
