Deutsche Telekom to Offer Subscribers Six Months of Apple Music for Free

German carrier Deutsche Telekom is planning to lure new customers by offering six months of Apple Music service for free, reports iPhone-ticker.de [Google Translate]. Aimed at customers who have not yet tried Apple Music, the offer will be announced at IFA in Berlin, set to take place from September 2 to September 7.

According to the report, new Apple Music subscribers on Deutsche Telekom will get the standard three-month free trial and then an additional three months of service paid for by the carrier.

Following the conclusion of the six month trial period, customers will be able to continue their subscriptions and pay for them via their personal phone bill, making it easier to maintain a subscription. It is not known if Deutsche Telekom will only be covering individual subscriptions or if customers are also eligible for family plans.

For its Apple Music service, Apple offers extended three month free trial periods in an effort to get people accustomed to using the service, a longer trial period than the one month offered by most streaming services. Apple's strategy has been somewhat successful, and as of June 2016, Apple Music had more than 15 million paying subscribers.

3 months cost $30. The telecom might charge more than that in the long run. Hate that kind of deal. Time flies.

A completely useless offer as Deutsche Telekom is very expensive and 4G data allowance is laughable. Germany in general has very poor offerings when it comes to data.

Telstra in Australia were giving you 12 months of Apple music for free. It is great.

I wish Apple themselves would offer different lengths of subscription such as a 'yearly' option that would be a bit cheaper in the long run.


Exactly.

I also wish Apple would bundle various services together at a discount.

Imagine paying $100 for a year of Apple Music and a year of extra iCloud storage.

Surely Apple has some wiggle-room in their margins to allow for bundled discounts.

On a semi-related sidenote... I feel that Google handed Apple their butt with the latest Google Photos ad ('//www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEK37MBTUPk').

Apple should offer their 50GB iCloud plan to everyone for FREE... and offer even more storage included with an Apple Music subscription.
