playsterPlayster is the first online streaming service to offer members unlimited access to ebooks, audiobooks, movies, TV shows, games and music. The platform brings together millions of popular titles in one user-friendly application.

Warner Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Starz, Paramount, Gameloft, HarperCollins and Penguin Random House are just some of the major studios, labels and publishers that Playster has deals with. This means that users can read New York Times Best Sellers, listen to today’s hottest new singles, enjoy movie soundtracks, watch fascinating documentaries, kick back with an addictive game and much more.

The fantastic design allows users to move around from one media type to another with the click of a button. What’s more, the platform is updated with new titles on a weekly basis, so there’s always something new to discover.

 

Playster Features

For those who are not sure if this application is right for them, there’s great news: Playster offers a FREE 30-day trial for all new members. You can enjoy all of the service’s features during the trial period and take advantage of their wide selection of books — including Fifty Shades of Grey, Love Warrior, Inferno, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, Hamilton — and entertainment from all genres, such as Mystery, Thriller, Cooking, Romance, Health & Fitness, Kids, Science, Religion (including The Bible in different languages, such as English, Spanish and French) and more. Or maybe you want to take advantage of their educational audiobooks and learn a new language, like Chinese, French, Italian or Spanish?

You can also stream professionally curated playlists or create your own unique ones and share them with friends through social media. Looking to share your account? No problem! Playster offers a Family Plan and there’s plenty of children-friendly content, including games, TV shows, movies, music and books. Each member will be able to enjoy a personalized profile within the family account, which means that someone else’s recommendations will never affect yours in any way.

 

How Much Does Playster Cost?

This excellent all-in-one service is available for both iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as Windows and Mac computers. To access the unlimited content anywhere in the world you simply have to sign up and choose your subscription type. The all-in-one bundle, for example, will cost you $24.95 in the U.S.. You can add additional accounts for your family members at a 50% discount price for each one.

If you prefer to sign up for just one media type, you can do that too at an even lower price. Music or Books + Audiobooks, for example, will cost you $9.95 a month. Meanwhile, Games will set you back just $4.50 per month and Movies + TV Shows are an unbelievably low $3.95 per month.

Overall, this is one sophisticated service, which allows users to enjoy a wide variety of content for a small monthly charge. It works seamlessly and the convenience cannot be beat.
