People who love audiobooks are relegated to paying for each one individually and the average title ranges from $12.99 to $29.99. A new subscription based audio service is breaking the mold by Skybrite, giving people a chance to listen to unlimited audiobooks for $9.99 a 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 training, guided meditations, celebrity interviews, language learning, audio theater performances, informative lectures, and much more.
The best known titles that are available at launch are: 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 training 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.
