  • Australian Carrier Telstra Offers Free Apple Music Subscription with iPhone 6 Plans

    Telstra, the Australian cellular operator recently announced a new incentive plan that gives iPhone 6 and 6 Plus customers a one-year Apple Music subscription for free when they sign up for the post-paid Go Mobile services. According to the new advertisement on the carrier’s website, the free Apple Music offer applies to new 12- or 24-month Go mobile plans for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The company notes that data charges do apply meaning the offer only covers Apple fees and doesn’t include contract bandwidth.

    The folks over at Gizmodo noted that Telstra is instituting carrier billing for its Apple Music offer as the terms and conditions specify that customers will be charged once the trial period ends. The following was stated regarding the matter:

    If you sign up and agree to T&Cs to put Apple Music on your Telstra account this will roll on to a paying subscription at the end of the trial / free period unless you cancel it. You will receive an SMS 3 days prior to rolling over to a paid subscription.
    For those of you who didn’t already know, Apple Music launched previously in June and a several carriers have adopted the streaming music service to incentivize their respective mobile plans. Just last week, T-Mobile announced that it would be adding Apple Music to its Music Freedom perk which lets users stream content from various music services without it counting against their data allotments.

    We’ll have to wait and see if the offer helps the carrier gain more traction and we’ll have to see if other carriers offer something similar in order to stay competitive.
