T-Mobile adds free Pandora Plus subscription

Avatar By Le Williams | 2 years ago

The free one-year subscription to Pandora Plus, released as one of T-Mobiles new perks, will be available to subscribers August 28 through the wireless carrier’s “T-Mobile Tuesday’s” app.

Pandora Plus, the middle tier of Pandora’s music streaming options, offers unlimited skips, no ads and offline listening for $4.99 per month. The streaming service also has a Spotify-like $9.99 per month Premium option that lets users create custom playlists in addition to a free option that has a limited amount of skips and does not let you save music for offline listening.

Only the main T-Mobile account phone number will be eligible for the perk.

By partnering with Pandora, T-Mobile adds a music option to its entertainment bundle. The company currently partners with Netflix to offer its T-Mobile One customers free subscriptions to the popular video streaming app.

T-Mobile has also teamed up with events company Live Nation to offer discounted tickets to upcoming concerts from artists including Charlie Puth, Counting Crows, and Wiz Khalifa through its T-Mobile Tuesday’s app.

The mobile phone leader now becomes the latest carrier to offer a music perk as part of its wireless service as a way to add value amid increased competition in the space.

Sprint offers Tidal streaming with its Unlimited Plus plans while AT&T offers a choice of either Amazon Music or Pandora Premium as part of its Unlimited &More Premium offering. Verizon recently announced that it would be partnering with Apple Music to offer its unlimited users six months of Apple’s streaming service.

AT&T and Sprint also offer video streaming services as part of their unlimited plans.
