T-MOBILE's "MUSIC FREEDOM" program allowing selected music streaming services to be accessed by subscribers without incurring data usage charges has added six more streamers to the approved list. New to the program are RDIO, SONGZA, ACCURADIO, BLACK PLANET, GROOVESHARK, and RADIO PARADISE. The carrier said that GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC, which led a social media vote for the service customers most wanted to see in the program, is "on track" to be added later this year as well.
The new additions join PANDORA, iTUNES RADIO, iHEARTRADIO, SPOTIFY, SLACKER, SAMSUNG MILK, and RHAPSODY, the initially-announced services in the program.
President/CEO JOHN LEGERE said, “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. Our goal is nothing less than to set all your music free, and we’re well on our way.”
