Singtel debuts data-free music service with Spotify, KKBOX, MeRadio and AMPed
Singapore, 25 February, 2016 – Singtel today launched Singtel Music, the first service in Singapore to offer customers music from popular providers like Spotify, KKBOX, AMPed and MeRadio, with zero local data charges.
Customers can add Singtel Music to their mobile plan for a fee to get a premium account from either Spotify, KKBOX, or AMPed which allows them to stream millions of songs without touching their data allowance. Similarly, they can tune into 13 MeRadio stations without impacting data usage.
“Many of our customers are big music fans, but they hold back from listening to music on their smartphones for fear of busting their data allowance. With Singtel Music, they can now enjoy music on their phones without spending anything on data.” said Ms Diana Chen, Vice President of Mobile Marketing at Consumer Singapore, Singtel.
She added, “We’ve teamed up with some of the most coveted music providers and Samsung, our device companion, to give customers the ultimate music experience: freedom of choice, peace of mind at super values!”
Singtel Music customers will enjoy:
· Unlimited data-free music streaming and downloading, and ad-free listening from either a Spotify, KKBOX or AMPed premium music account, with 13 of Singapore’s most popular radio stations via MeRadio
· Invitations to exclusive events including music showcases and artistes’ meet and greets
· Option of S$7.90/month with a 12-month contract or S$9.90/month with no contract
“As Singapore’s most popular music streaming service, with one in three Singaporeans hooked up to Spotify, we’re very excited to be a part of the Singtel Music experience,” said Ms Sunita Kaur, Managing Director, Spotify Asia. “Spotify offers an unrivalled personalised music experience and we continue to break new ground with best-in-class features including Discover Weekly, your very own soundtrack delivered every week, alongside the best playlists, the latest charts and brand new releases.”
“We are truly excited to partner with Singtel to offer users an immersive and locally relevant music experience. As a pioneer in providing digital music service, KKBOX is currently available in Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand. We own the most comprehensive Asian digital music library and hope to break all possible barriers, and let music do the talking. With Singtel's new Singtel Music service, we believe both parties can bring music closer to music lovers,” said Ms Josephine Cheng, Senior Vice President, KKBOX.
“This is a timely collaboration between MeRadio and Singtel as Mediacorp is marking 80 years of radio broadcasting in 2016. MeRadio will see a refresh by introducing a better interface for accessing all of Mediacorp’s 13 radio stations and other new features. We are constantly looking for new ways to enhance the listening experience for our users and offering free data makes it even sweeter for our listeners,” said Mr Lai Mun Dart, Head of Youth Segment, Mediacorp.
All Singtel postpaid customers are eligible to subscribe to the Singtel Music. Subscription charges will be included in their monthly Singtel bill.
Customers can sign up for Singtel Music online or via any Singtel Shop. All they need to do is create a Spotify, KKBOX or AMPed account with Singtel Music to enjoy data-free music.
