Scribd is no stranger to bundling various subscription systems. The unlimited audiobook and ebook company unveiled a Scribd and New York Times pairing for $12.99 per month and also one with Spotify. This week, Scribd has just launched a pairing with a number of niche services.
Scribd Perks is an $8.99 supplementary addon that gives users access to Pandora Plus (ad-free music and podcasts), TuneIn Premium (live sports, news, music and podcasts), Peak (brain training), CuriosityStream (documentaries and series), CONtv + Comics (movies and digital comics), FarFaria (illustrated children’s books that are read aloud) and MUBI (hand-picked films). On their own, each of these costs anywhere from $2.99 and $10.99 per month, so for $8.99 total, this is a good deal.
Scribd CEO Trip Adler said in a statement “With millions of people around the world continuing to shelter in place, having access to different forms of enrichment is more important than ever before. We’re thrilled to be partnering with leading consumer brands to offer a more accessible way for consumers to easily stay informed, entertained, and connected. Scribd is designed to help people explore the world’s best content, and now, with the launch of our new Scribd Perks platform, there is even more premium content to discover.”
