Verizon Wireless Adds Free Apple Music, Adding Millions Of Subscribers To Streamer
Verizon has added free Apple Music subscriptions to several of its Unlimited wireless data plans. The carrier had been offering 6 months or free Apple Music, but the move to permanent subscriptions potentially adds millions of subscribers to Apple Music.
Starting Thursday Starting January 17, Apple Music will be included in Verizon Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited plans. Customers choosing Go Unlimited, they can still get six months of Apple Music free.
"When we introduced six months free of Apple Music to Verizon Unlimited subscribers, we said it was just the beginning of a great collaboration between Verizon and Apple to bring music streaming to our loyal customers,” said Angie Klein, vice president of marketing at Verizon. "Our customers loved the offer, so we’re expanding the value of our Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited plans by including Apple Music at the same plan price. You can stream more of the music you love on the network you deserve.”
Each plan includes added performance, features and global access. Above Unlimited includes 75 GB of premium 4G LTE data along with HD video streaming, 20 GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot, 5 international TravelPass sessions per month and 500 GB of Verizon Cloud storage, and now Apple Music, all for $60 per line per month with Auto Pay on an account with four lines.
