Kobo eBooks Subscription Service Adds AudioBook Catalog

eBook News / Thursday September 7, 2017

Rakuten Kobo have just announced that they have added audiobooks to its iOS app catalog which will be rolled out in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, and New Zealand. A 30-day free trial is also on offer for users to see how the system works before they commit.

Kobo customers can continue to buy audiobooks on an individual basis. They can now also get one book each month for the USD$10 per month subscription service. The prices will vary accordingly in each country which at the moment is as follows:

$13 in Canada

£6.99 in the U.K

$13 in Australia

$14 in New Zealand

Another option is to buy a three-pack credit and store up to 24 credits in a subscription account.

Once an audiobook is purchased, customers can make use of the app’s built-in audiobook player, which includes options to change the narration speed, check the time remaining, and set a sleep timer.

You can download the The Kobo ebooks and audiobooks app for iPhone and iPad on the App Store.
