On November 28th 2017 Storytel announced plans to expand its audio-book service to Italy. Today on June 26th, after nearly a year’s worth of preparations, Storytel goes live in Italy, making it the service’s thirteenth language market.
“The Italian audio-book market hasn’t been fully developed yet, but the subscription model is well-established thanks to film and music services, which is why we judge this to be a promising market for audio books,” says Stefan Tegenfalk, Head of Expansion at Storytel. “At the moment we’re offering an Italian-language catalogue of just over 1,300 audio books, as well as tens of thousands of titles in English from leading publishers. We’ll also be releasing about twenty-five audio books each month, produced in-house in our own studios in Milan, as well as in other studios.”
