This week, live streaming audio service TuneIn announced that it will be offering TuneIn Premium on all Amazon Alexa-enabled devices. Now, for the first time, Alexa customers will be able to access the entire library of TuneIn Premium content from any one of Amazon’s smart speakers and home devices.

Contributing, commercial-free content providers accessible via TuneIn Premium include national and international news sources like CNN, FOX News Radio, NPR and BBC as well as live sports content from college sports teams, the NFL and Major League Baseball.

According to a press release, the launch of this collaboration comes just in time for the start of the 2022 Major League Baseball season, giving listeners the ability to stream MLB games through TuneIn. Sports fans can hear their favorite team play live by saying “Alexa, listen to sports.”

“We’re excited to bring TuneIn’s robust catalog of premium audio to Alexa customers, giving them even more ways to interact with their favorite audio content from all around the world,” said Ben Shepherd, Audio Director for Amazon Alexa.

All Alexa customers will receive a free, three-month trial, with content available both on and off Alexa-enabled devices, when they first enable TuneIn Premium. To continue accessing premium content after the trial concludes, customers can choose to subscribe to TuneIn Premium for $9.99/month.

Existing TuneIn subscribers can also take advantage of this new partnership by linking their accounts to their Amazon devices.

In this week’s joint announcement, Richard Stern, CEO of TuneIn, said the company aims to be “anywhere listening is occurring.”

“This is just one of the many developments we have in our product pipeline in the smart home device space as we look ahead,” Stern said. “Through this collaboration with Alexa, listeners can easily listen to their favorite TuneIn Premium shows and stations with a simple voice command.”
