T-Mobile Adds Six New Streaming Services to Music Freedom

Back in June, T-Mobile announced a new option for some of its Simple Choice customers that allows them to stream music without dipping into their monthly bucket of data. A customer with a 3GB Simple Choice plan, for example, can stream as much music from Pandora as he or she wants, and that streaming won’t count toward the 3GB allotment. That only applied to a few existing services, but today T-Mobile added even more services under its Music Freedom umbrella.

The carrier announced Wednesday morning that customers can now stream AccuRadio, Black Planet, Grooveshark, Radio Paradise, Rdio and Songza without affecting their existing data plan. The carrier notes that these services join a few others that were already available as part of Music Freedom, including Rhapsody, Pandora, iTunes Radio, iHeartRadio, Samsung Milk, Slacker and Spotify.

When T-Mobile first introduced Music Freedom, it asked customers to vote on the music services that they wanted added. Google Play Music and Xbox Music were the top votes, though T-Mobile has yet to add either service. The carrier says Google Play Music is coming “later this year.”
