T-Mobile adds 6 new music streaming services to Music Freedom, promises Google Play Music coming soon
T-Mobile announced earlier today that it is adding six new music streaming services to its Music Freedom Uncarrier initiative, effectively doubling the number of services subscribers can use without touching their data buckets.
T-Mobile says that its Music Freedom program now includes support for AccuRadio, Black Planet, Grooveshark, Radio Paradise, Rdio and Songza. This is in addition to iHeart Radio, iTunes Radio, Pandora, Rhapsody, Samsung Milk, Slacker and Spotify.
Unfortunately, the clear winner of T-Mobile’s earlier vote was Google Play Music All Access, but T-Mobile says that this service will be added later this year.
From T-Mobile’s press release:
When the big ‘carriers’ look at music, they see an opportunity to use someone’s passion to make a buck. When the Un-carrier looks at music, we see an opportunity to set customers free from the tolls and limitations those carriers impose,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Our goal is nothing less than to set all your music free, and we’re well on our way.”
