Is this different than what we had access to before? The streaming only content? Thanks!

I'm confused why the a is a slick deal. Hasn't this been a normal and always available benefit of being a prime member?

Bummer the audiobooks are streaming-only. I wouldn't even care if I had a time-limit on how long they could be downloaded before I had to go online again, but I'd rather download books on Wi-Fi than stream over 4G and use up data.

The Channels content (and the audiobooks) are NOT streaming only. Download the Audible app and you can download to your device for offline listening. I recommend the lectures from The Great Courses.

I have the audible app (iOS). The audiobooks section of channels are all marked as streaming only (and seem to function as such).

Am I missing a way to workaround, or are you just mistaken about the ability to download channel audiobooks in the app? Serious question... not trying to be sarcastic.

This is a "New" feature. Audible channels was only added about 6 months ago.
You just missed the announcement

For grandfathered Prime plans, can all accounts access this or just the main account?

Not sure what grand fathered means relating to Amazon Prime but as a secondary on a Prime Family account I do not see anything relating to free Prime streaming in the app.
