Rhapsody and MetroPCS Unveil New $5 Music Offer

Users can add it to any $40, $50 and $60 monthly smartphone plan

Wireless carrier MetroPCS has a new offer available for its customers, launched in collaboration with Rhapsody and providing them with the possibility to enjoy music while on the go for less than before.

All MetroPCS users interested in the new deal can add Rhapsody to the carrier’s simplified $40, $50 and $60 monthly smartphone plans, while having to pay only $5 extra for that.

According to the two companies, the new offer was meant to enable users to enjoy great value for their money with unlimited on-demand mobile music bundle anywhere.

“We recognize that music is an important aspect of many of consumers' lives and we are committed to providing services that enhance our customers' mobile experiences at a price they can afford,” said Phil Terry, senior vice president, corporate marketing, MetroPCS.

“We've seen great success with our Rhapsody Unlimited offer and now that we have the best value in town for unlimited, on-demand mobile music, we expect even greater success for MetroPCS.”

The two companies have worked closely to tailor the new offer to the needs of MetroPCS’ users, through offering customized programming and editorial content that is being updated regularly.

Rhapsody also notes that it has seen a great increase in demand on mobile devices, as around 56 percent of all listening is coming from mobile phones at the moment, a 27 percent increase when compared to 2011.

The company is expecting to register further growth in the coming years, and the partnership with MetroPCS should help in this regard.

“We are thrilled to work with MetroPCS to bring on-demand music to the consumer with these amazing plans,” said Jon Irwin, president, Rhapsody.

“The future of digital music is the mobile phone, whether it's in your pocket, in your car or connected to an in-home audio system, and our future will be built on partnerships with service providers like MetroPCS, who can bring Rhapsody to a broader audience through compelling offers like this one.”
