Apple Music is now at Optus. And thanks to a partnership between Optus and Apple, you can get up to 12-months free Apple Music. An offer that is available to both new and existing customers.
The offer, which is exclusive to Optus, can be taken up by simply signing up to an eligible Optus post-paid mobile plan. In other words, either a 12-month SIM Only or 24 Month Phone Plan. Depending on which plan you choose, you will get either 6-months or 12-months of Apple Music – free.
For example, if you sign up to the A$40/month SIM Only plan with 40GB of data per month, you will get 6-months free Apple Music. But sign up to the A$50/month plan with 80GB of data then it is doubled to 12-months.
A subscription to Apple Music costs A$11.99 a month. Meaning you have the potential to save up to A$143 over the first 12-months. After the 6 or 12 months trial, you will then be charged A$11.99. However, there is the ability to cancel the subscription at any time.
“We are excited to offer Apple Music to Optus customers and help more Australians connect and share the joys of streaming music on our amazing network.” – Optus VP, TV, Content & Product Development, Clive Dickens
Apple Music is Apple’s music streaming service which is available across a number of devices. Including both iOS (iPhone, iPad, etc) and Android products. The benefits of a subscription include the ability to stream and download from over 50 million songs, curated and personalised playlists, radio stations, and lots more.
Unfortunately, the offer does stop short of offering data-free Apple Music, something Telstra does offer (along with Boost Mobile). It appears Optus has also removed data-free streaming of Spotify and TV streaming services such as Netflix.
