Telstra has signed a deal with Apple to offer the telco’s postpaid customers a 12 month free Apple Music membership.
Apple Music, which normally costs $11.99 per month, will be free for Telstra postpaid customers using an iPhone with a 12 or 24 month Go Mobile plan.
At the end of the plan customers can continue to use Apple Music and have the monthly fee billed to their Telstra account.
Telstra executive Joe Pollard said the offer was in response to customer demand.
“Our customers are telling us they want superior content and we are delighted to be the only telco in Australia to offer a 12 month membership to Apple Music.
“When you combine Apple Music with Australia’s best mobile network, you get a brilliant music experience that we know consumers will love. This is an incredibly exciting time for music lovers in Australia,” Ms Pollard said.
Apple Music offers around 35 million tracks on demand, ‘expert’ music recommmendations and unlimited radio station skips.
Rival telco Vodafone currently offers users the choice of free access to Spotify, Stan or Fairfax news with select Red plans, while Optus does not have a streaming arrangement in place.
The Australian reviewed Apple Music when it launched in July, describing it as the best subscription music service available.
