Amazon today announced the preview availability of Audible Plus, a lower-cost tier of the firm’s audiobook subscription service.

“Audible Plus offers members greater selection through unlimited access to a robust catalog that includes over 68,000 hours of content and 11,000+ titles from across the content spectrum, including documentaries, comedy, journalism, kids, wellness, self-development, selections from Audible Theater and more,” the firm announced. “New Audible Originals come from a wide range of talent including Common, St. Vincent, Blake Griffin, Jesse Eisenberg, Tom Morello, Kevin Bacon, David Koepp, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kate Mara, Tayari Jones and Harvey Fierstein, among many other celebrated creators and performers. The content slate will continue to grow alongside various technical enhancements over the coming months.”

Audible Plus costs $7.95 per month, or about half the price of the existing Audible subscription, which has been renamed to Audible Premium Plus. Members who opt to stick with the more expensive premium option will still get one credit each month for use towards any audiobook
