Deutsche Telekom Said To Be Working with Apple To Offer 6-Months of Free Music

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

While T-Mobile seems to be doing everything it can to lure in American customers, its parent company Deutsche Telekom appears to be getting ready to offer an incentive of their own by offering customers a free six-month trial of Apple Music, upping the current three-month trial that Apple already has in place.

Apple’s streaming music service has more than 15 million paying subscribers, which is impressive for only launching a year ago, and while the details of who contacted who in this reported deal are unknown, it is a win-win for Apple.

After the trial period, Deutsche Telekom will allow customers to add the recurring subscription onto their phone bill, which is a fairly common practice for European phone carriers. While convenient, it also makes it easier for customers to forget the amount of money being spent on other services.

An official announcement is expected to take place at IFA in Berlin, which will take place the first week of September.
