EE has extended its offer of six months free Apple Music streaming to all pay monthly customers, almost a year after offering free access to the service for new and upgrading users.
And what’s more, streaming and downloading tunes and videos from Apple Music over EE’s 4G network will not eat into users’ data allowance.
It means EE follows Three and Virgin Mobile in offering data-reliant services as part of users’ contracts.
Three’s ‘Go Binge’ contracts allow data–free use of Netflix and Deezer, while Virgin now allows users to browse Twitter without hammering their monthly gigabytes.
EE says pay monthly handset and SIM–only customers can take advantage of its Apple Music deal, while those who already took part in its original offer can also sign up.
Apple already offers a three month free trial of its Spotify–rival to all new sign–ups, before charging £9.99 a month.
EE’s lengthier deal represents a £30 saving, and that’s without factoring in the data allowance saved by using Apple Music on the UK’s largest 4G network.
EE says the offer will begin on Monday 19th July. Customers with both iPhone and Android handsets can get on board, with Apple offering a dedicated Music app for Google–backed phones.
