Absolute Radio and KISS to offer premium services for monthly fee

Bauer is set to launch premium subscription services for Absolute Radio and KISS.

For a monthly fee, the service allows listeners to access the stations 24/7 ad-break free and skip songs in the app and via Alexa devices.

Subscribers also have access to exclusive webcast stations. For Absolute Radio, this means that on top of the 10 stations already available across the network, including Absolute Radio Country and Absolute Classic Rock, listeners will also gain access to brand new stations including Classic Country and Andy Bush’s Indie Disco.

Meanwhile KISS listeners can enjoy exclusive access to the likes of KISSTORY 90s, KISSTORY Slow Jams, and Super Summer Anthems alongside the 6 KISS Network stations available, including KISS, KISSTORY and KISS Fresh.

The KISS premium service is available from today, with Absolute Radio available from the end of June.

Speaking about the launch, Graham Bryce, Chief Operating Officer of Bauer Media Audio UK said “At Bauer, we pride ourselves on truly understanding our audiences and constantly innovating to ensure we deliver high quality content – whenever and however our listeners want it.

“Our new premium offer allows new levels of control for our KISS and Absolute Radio users, so they can enjoy the live radio experience and premium content in a way no other company in the UK is offering right now.”
