Apr 29, 2014

Sprint is bringing Spotify into the Framily.

The cellphone carrier said Tuesday it would offer a free six-month subscription to Spotify Premium to all new and existing customers on the Framily group discount plan. The plan costs upward of $25 a month for up to 10 friends and for unlimited talk, text and 1 gigabyte of cellular data.

Spotify Premium, which gives users unlimited online and to 20 million tracks, normally costs $10 a month. After the six months are up, Sprint is offering Spotify Premium for $8 a month if there are up to five people subscribing, or $5 a month if six to 10 people subscribe.

The deal tying music streaming with a cellphone plan follows Beats Music's tie-up with AT&T in January.
