T-Mobile Offers 14 Streaming Music Apps Data-Free

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) today announced a major evolution of its groundbreaking Un-carrier 6.0 program (Music Freedom), with the addition of 14 new streaming services, more than doubling the number of providers currently in the program. Today’s additions include names like Google Play Music, Xbox Music and SoundCloud as well as a diverse range of specialty services to suit all tastes - whether you’re into EDM, Jazz, Caribbean, Bollywood or all of the above. (See below for a full list of the newly added services.)

With Music Freedom, T-Mobile Simple Choice customers stream all the music they want on T-Mobile’s Data Strong network - data charges do not apply. And, not only is Music Freedom available for T-Mobile customers at no extra charge, it’s also completely free for music streaming providers. No backroom deals. No paid prioritization. Just you and your music - unleashed.

“Music Freedom is pro-consumer, pro-music and pure Un-carrier,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “And today we’re taking another huge step toward our ultimate goal of including every streaming music service in the program. Anyone can play. No one pays. And everyone wins.”

Music Freedom has been wildly popular since its launch this summer. The number of T-Mobile customers streaming music each day has jumped nearly 300%, and they’re streaming a whopping 66 million songs per day - or roughly 200 terabytes of data per day - on T-Mobile’s Data Strong™ network.

business model A T-Mobile spokeswoman tells us: 

"We're doing this to benefit our customers. Music Freedom is open to all licensed and lawful music streaming services.  You can count on us to continue expanding the program until we eventually have ALL music services represented —including those suggested by our customers, and those that have asked to be added to our program. Additionally, we aren't getting paid by any of the music services to do this and this is not a sponsored-data offering."
