Singtel Subscribers Can Now Stream Songs From Apple Music Without Busting Their Data

Apple Music is fast catching up to Spotify to be the prime music streaming service and in Singapore, they have partnered with Singtel to even the playing field on their rivals.

Previously, if you wanted to conserve your data when streaming from Apple Music, you would have to download your tracks via wifi and playlists so that they can be accessible offline and not eat into your mobile data.

Now Singtel subscribers can conserve both their precious storage space and mobile data quotas.

In a swanky red themed event last night with performances by local artists Charlie Lim, Sezairi, and Tabitha Nauser, Singtel and Apple announced a new add-on service that will bring data-free streaming to subscribers of Apple Music.

Starting from today, Apple Music subscribers can pay the same $9.98 a month through Singtel enjoy this data-free experience.

The icing on the cake though is for Singtel subscribers who are signing up for a new plan or re-contracting, as they will be eligible to receive 6 months of free Apple Music

After the free subscription is over, users will be charged $9.98 a month from the 7th month through their Singtel bill.

If you’d like to start using Apple Music with your Singtel account, simply sign up online through the Singtel website or app, or head down to any Singtel stores.

Do note that only the 24 month and 12 month postpaid plans are eligible.

With this Singtel adds Apple Music to their already extensive list of streaming services that you can play music data-free from, which also includes Spotify and Tidal.

Existing Apple Music Subscribers Can Get It Too

There’s more good news though as this offer isn’t just for new subscribers of Apple Music

Existing Apple Music users can also enjoy the 6 month free subscription when they re-contract or sign up for a new Singtel mobile plan, either from today or have done so in the last 2 months.

After linking your Singtel subscription to your current Apple Music account, you will also be able to retain all your saved music and playlists.

Additionally, the Apple Music add-on is only for local data. So if you’re using Apple Music to stream your favourite tracks overseas, you’ll be eating into your data there.

Also videos in Apple Music don’t count towards the data-free streaming service, so tough luck if you like your music videos as much as your songs.

Apple Music is now on course to share their library of more than 45 million songs with a wider Singaporean audience thanks to Singtel, and with their curated and localised recommendations, it might just unearth more local artists.

Apple Music is available on Android, iOS, and on Windows through iTunes.
