T-Mobile Music Freedom now includes Grooveshark, Rdio and Songza, Google Play coming “later this year”

Grooveshark

T-Mobile today announced that it’s adding 6 new music streaming services to its Music Freedom movement. As part of its Simple Choice plans, customers can stream music as much as they like without it counting against their data allotment. Until now only iHeart Radio, iTunes Radio, Pandora, Rhapsody, Samsung Milk, Slacker and Spotify were included. From today, customers will also be able to listen to music using AccuRadio, Black Planet, Grooveshark, Radio Paradise, Rdio and Songza.

These 6 were among the most popular services voted for by customers, but they weren’t THE most popular. Google Play Music topped T-Mobile’s charts as the most-requested service, and T-Mo claims it will be added to Music Freedom “later this year”.  And if John Legere’s statement in today’s press release is anything to by, T-Mobile is far from done:

“When the big ‘carriers’ look at music, they see an opportunity to use someone’s passion to make a buck.  When the Un-carrier looks at music, we see an opportunity to set customers free from the tolls and limitations those carriers impose,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Our goal is nothing less than to set all your music free, and we’re well on our way.”

So, if you’re a Grooveshark or Rdio lover, you’ll be able to streaming using your favorite service as much as you like. T-Mobile’s Music Freedom now lets you listen to music from 13 different services, and at least one more major service will be added before the end of this year.

    So how long is it going to be before they support streaming music from my personal media server through Subsonic? No?

    • Ordeith

      You expect some kind of net neutrality and fairness from T-Mobile? HA!

      • twicetheprice

        Looking at all the replies here, you really are just a whiny little bitch.

    • Nurdface Gamerhandz

      And how do you propose they set that up for JUST music without you being able to stream 4k movies from your home server?

      • Ordeith

        Easy, raise the throttled speed to something like 260kbps. Perfect for streaming music, won’t work for streaming 4k movies.

        • BlackJu

          That would be the easiest way to do it. Not sure what other consequences that would bring (i.e. other sources of load on the network). This whitelisting policy seems the most inefficient way. I wouldn’t be surprised if T-Mobile was receiving something in exchange for promoting a service, because this is what it amounts to.

        • Nurdface Gamerhandz

          Aren’t you the huge ATT shill? I remember your username somewhere..

        • Ordeith

          I shill for no company.

    • JamesG

      Personal media services are to open…..
      Get unlimited or suck it up

  • Krazonite

    “Google Play Music topped T-Mobile’s charts as the most-requested service, and T-Mo claims it will be added to Music Freedom “later this year”.”

    Really have to wonder what the hold-up is on this? It’s not like they have to work out licensing and from the looks of it, it would be the one that affects the most users (going by the “votes”).

    I won’t go so far as to assume that’s exactly why it’s taking so long – Legere and Co haven’t done anything overt to deserve that as near as I can tell, but it does make one wonder what the deal is…

    • NapoPeb

      How do you distinguish traffic to Google Play (given it uses multiple CDN’s and no common URI when streaming) from, say, google.com? I’d be very interested to know your take.

    • BlackJu

      They still have to work out the kickbacks, err, I mean details of the partnership.

      • Krazonite

        Heh…

        It’s funny because it is all too often true…(hopefully not in this instance, though)

    • itguy08

      Probably because they have to get a list of IP’s to add to the whitelists. I’d imagine the amount for Google Play Music is HUGE!

      • Krazonite

        Doesn’t matter how huge it is. If it were just a list, importing it into a white-list should be a trivial exercise.

        (depending on bureaucracy levels involved, the only hurdle might be *getting* the list – but I highly doubt Google would not be willing to give that out considering it would only add another reason for folks to sign up for their service.)

        …it’s got to be something else.

        • monkeybutts

          Maybe they are announcing free app store downloads no matter what platform you use. I’m sure it’s hard to filter music from other play store stuff.

        • Krazonite

          “I’m sure it’s hard to filter music from other play store stuff.”

          I suppose I’ve heard of more insane things than this…(I find it hard to believe that Google doesn’t separate these services out of licensing requirements alone, but…)

    • http://pharaohtechblog.blogspot.com/ Conan Kudo (ニール・ゴンパ)

      Google has one of the most complex systems for delivering media. It’s probably quite tricky for T-Mobile to set up all the necessarily whitelisting.

      • Krazonite

        I’ve seen this type of statement before but no-one has been able to explain what the difference is. Why would Google’s service be so much more complicated than say, Slacker?

        If you could enlighten me; I would definitely appreciate it!

        • Nurdface Gamerhandz

          Because T-Mobile has to figure out how to whitelist Google Play Music without whitelisting the rest of Google’s services (no free youtube, sorry)

        • Deadeye37

          I think you hit the nail on the head.

        • Krazonite

          Okay – more services. Makes sense.

          Still find it hard to believe Google doesn’t separate their services or isn’t chomping at the bit to help T-Mo ram this through, though.

        • steveb944

          Google wants to know what you’re doing no matter what, so it’s all bundled. As you use, or not in terms of background services, it’s constantly connected to their servers feeding information back and forth. It’s the biggest regular battery drain on an Android device.

  • http://www.willcollection.com WillCollection

    No Xbox music yet

    • monkeybutts

      Yeah for windows phone there isn’t as many options.

      • http://www.willcollection.com WillCollection

        That’s a statement that doesn’t only apply to music subscription services unfortunately lol

    • BlackJu

      And no cyan either. Summer= sometime this year.

    • JamesG

      You are the first I’ve heard who uses it. I’ve never used it, is it worth it?

      • IamDefiler

        Yes.

      • monkeybutts

        It’s a decent service. It’s a pay to use app, but the lack of music streaming apps on windows phone is ridiculous.

        Pandora is the only big service that really supports WP. Spotify requires a paid membership to even use the app.

        • Ordeith

          Spotify was updated, it matches the Android offering now.
          The platform also has Pandora, Slacker, iHeardRadio, Last.FM, Rhapsody, Rdio, and Xbox Music among its offerings.

      • http://www.willcollection.com WillCollection

        I like it but I would suggest doing the 30 days free trail first. The mobile app is kinda confusing to navigate but its like a spodify+Itunes as you can stream, download, buy mp3s/albums but it doesn’t always get everything like EPs….Itunes gets everything

      • http://www.willcollection.com WillCollection

        try the 30 day free trail first, the mobile app is a little confusing to navigate.

  • monkeybutts

    I wonder if google play would include personal collection uploaded there.

    • Dakota

      I dont think so but thats the only thing that would make me take a second look at Tmobile since that’s how I use GPM. Still remember when it was first introduced and waiting overnight while my iTunes library uploaded. I dont use any streaming services

    • JamesG

      I wouldnt see why not, its still technically streaming from the same application whether is Radio or your own music. I know with ITunes radio the music that is yours doesn’t count against data

  • Chris Sanner

    I like not having music counting against my limit. I do NOT like where this is leading

    • EndlessIke

      Nice hat.

  • Ordeith

    Just put the throttled speed at 260kbps and stop playing this game already, T-Mobile.

    • Nurdface Gamerhandz

      “Just give me everything for free, T-Mobile.”

      • Dakota

        I might consider switching…

      • Ordeith

        There is no equivalency between my statement and yours. So you must be asking for yourself. Why do you think T-Mobile should give you everything for free?

        • donnybee

          Actually, his statement was pretty accurate.

          Your attitude against T-Mobile suggests that T-Mobile is trying to play games and screw with people, when in reality they’re the ONLY ones doing more to give their customers freedom than anyone else. It’s like once people see that a carrier cares about its customers, some people like to milk it and complain about not getting EVERYTHING they want for free or at a super low cost. Just be happy knowing you’re with a company that gives two shits about you and stop complaining. Sick of not getting everything you want? Go to Verizon or AT&T!

          …oh wait..

        • Ordeith

          As for playing games and screwing with people. The headline and byline of a recent Time Magazine article reads:

          T-Mobile’s Unlimited Music Streaming Is the Worst for Net Neutrality.

          “Music freedom” looks like a benefit for subscribers, and that’s the most dangerous part.

          you should read it sometime. As well as articles on Ars and other tech oriented sites. Get educated before you make statements that read like you think T-Mobile’s farts don’t stink and that you rather like the smell.

        • JamesG

          Subscribers to what? Only a few of these services actually require a subscription

        • Ordeith

          Subscribers to T-Mobile.

        • JamesG

          Of course its a benefit, how else would it be? No one seems to understand how difficult it can be to whitelist these services. Not all music services will be open overnight.

        • Ordeith

          All T-Mobile had to do was raise the throttled limit to something reasonable, like 260kbps, that would have worked for music streaming. And all that data would have been treated neutrally and fairly. And all music services that could stream at that rate would have been available almost literally overnight.

        • Comicchris

          If you don’t want to be throttled. You should find a plan that works for you. At the very least they offer a truly unlimited high speed option for 30 dollars, no throttling. Too me, it sounds like you don’t want to pay for the service….”Just give me everything for free, T-Mobile.” Sounds very applicable in this case…

        • Ordeith

          Please don’t break net neutrality, T-Mobile. is all that applies here.

        • JamesG

          Dude quit your bitching or pay tmobile to get the highspeed data you want so bad. You paid for the lower tier so stick with it

        • Ordeith

          So many people are distracted by the shiny free trinkets they get blinded to what’s really going on. I am sad for you, but I will keep advocating a position that would end up benefiting you as well.
          I just wish you wouldn’t advocate for something that could ultimately condemn us all.

        • ChitChatCat

          Are you breaking net neutrality when you offer a truly unlimited experience for a certain cost, but offer the customer to be able to choose a non-neutral experience? Sure the option chosen by some people has some of the prongs of a non-neutral experience. That’s obvious. But it is just that — an option. Something that an educated consumer can opt into. Other providers-of-pipe have wanted a non-neutral experience to be the only option (Comcast, et al).

        • donnybee

          I agree that Net Neutrality is more important to preserve than anything. But that’s a discussion to direct towards the courts and FCC. While other companies could, and more likely would (in the case of AT&T). use Net Neutrality against it’s customers, T-Mobile is using it as an opportunity to give people more after they hit their cap. I like being with a company that will benefit its customers rather than looking at every loophole in the system as a way to choke-hold us.

        • comicchris

          T-Mobile offers an unlimited data package…feel free to stream any music program. All streaming services are covered there. What I’m saying is, there are other options to stream music.

        • Comicchris

          Just to clarify, I meant the TRULY Unlimited. 30 dollars a month and you have piece of mind. Not having to worry about throttling.

        • UMA_Fan

          They would have a point but tmobile still offers unlimited data period AND they have no financial arrangement with the internet radio companies.

    • wp 8.1er

      My brother, you seem to have a lot of hate towards T-Mobile. Wondering why your on a T-Mobile blog to begin with. We all agree there is problems in the industry, buy why continuously bash some who is at least making an effort to change the norm. I assume your either an employee, owe them money, stuck on a different carrier who uses no vaseline, or just bitter. Carpe Diem – stop the negativity.

  • Dakota

    I guess it will never include the music customers OWN and keep in the Google music cloud – it’ll just be if you pay or subscribe for a service. If I ever were to use a large amount of data it ewould be streaming this music in a car, working out, jog etc…. I like playing the music I want, in my order, with no ads and no cash…

    • JamesG

      Then keep it on your phone?? You are using data even if it is your music…

  • Qbancelli

    Someone wake me up when they add TunedIn.

    • Ryanide

      Yeah, TuneIn Radio was the second most popular voted service, and T-Mobile completely missed them in this round of additions.

      TuneIn Radio is all I really listen to. I don’t want the others that “Suggest” songs to me. I want to listen to internet radio stations from around the world.

      Although, Google Music will be awesome when they add it.

      • Daniel Marchand

        I’ll third that, I want TuneIn! :)

        • DaveTexan

          I did vote for Tune-In. I do not listen to anything else.

  • donnybee

    Not understanding why people are getting so mad. Yes, the most popular isn’t free yet, but not too long ago none of the music was free to stream and not count against data. It’s like everyone thinks “everything free, or bust”

    We’re getting there. Why blast the only carrier who is giving its users MORE freedom?
    Entitled much?

    • Ordeith

      I’ll blast them for their abandonment of net neutrality tenants all day long.

      • KijBeta

        Are the music streaming people paying T-mobile to be part of the Music freedom? or just working with them to white list the streaming servers to prevent it counting data? If they are paying to be apart of this I can see a potential problem. But they are also adding more services than I have ever heard of, If it was just one or two services I would be worried even more than them adding what seems like every music streaming service under the sun.

        • derp hurr-durr

          Seems a lot of people really like to cry, “Net Neutrality Violation!”

          (even if they really have no clue what it’s all about.)

          No throttling? Check.

          Can use any service on the network, none taking QoS precedence over any other? Check.

          We’re good here.

  • Ordeith

    “This is the most insidious type of net neutrality violation, because it’s being pitched as a benefit. Most users stand to gain from the free data, so they may not even care about the slippery slope they’re on.”
    “T-Mobile tries hard to look like it’s putting an arm over your shoulder, but “music freedom” is actually more of a stranglehold.”
    -Jared Newman, TIME Magazine.

    • JamesG

      Even when they continue adding new services?

      • Ordeith

        “Customers may enjoy [T-Mobile's offer], but that’s because T-Mobile has created an artificial scarcity, and then lifted that scarcity as it suits them.”
        -Michael Weinberg, vice present at Public Knowledge

        • UMA_Fan

          What an idiot. He likely is one of those people who has no idea they offer unlimited data.

        • JamesG

          Artificial scarcity….?

        • Ordeith

          Yes. They artificially create a scarcity of high speed data to increase its perceived value to the consumer, then lift that scarcity for services when they either get paid to do so or just feel like it as in this case.

    • der hurr-durr

      Your tinfoil hat is showing…

      Net Neutrality: All data treated equally – none given preference.

      The point is to stop throttling. This has nothing at all to do with that. The “facebook-only phone and plan” recently spoken of is much closer to a Net neutrality issue than this could ever be.

      Nothing is being limited or throttled here.

      • Ordeith

        You lack of education and understanding is showing. I have made mentions of a lot of media and expert sources here, go read the source material and come back educated.

        • derp hurr-durr

          sound-bytes are not fact.

          None of the quotes you have posted even begin to touch on how they believe this affects Net Neutrality in the least.

          Lots of FUD – no meat.

          Facts:
          - Until the “LTE limit” for the plan is reached, all streaming services get equal bandwidth – none are throttled.

          - Once the LTE data limit is hit, *all* streaming services (all data, in fact) is throttled – including music streaming services.

          - No preference is given in terms of QoS or performance for any type of data. Period.

        • Ordeith

          including music streaming services. – EXCEPT for the ones T-Mobile has exempted. FACT – upon hitting the cap, there are preferences given and selective throttling.
          Stop being thick.

        • derp hurr-durr

          “including music streaming services. – EXCEPT for the ones T-Mobile has exempted. ”

          This is incorrect. All data is throttled once the cap is reached, including the services T-Mo has stated do not count towards the cap.

          The streaming services T-Mobile has been able to set up do not count towards that cap. That is all. Once that cap is reached, they – just like all data, is throttled. All of it.

          Do you actually know anything about this service, or is your entire pool of “knowledge” regarding it centered around the quotes you do seemingly so love to paste?

        • JamesG

          Do your research, none of the whitelisted application go towards your cap and even if you hit your cap the music will still use high speed data. What would be the fucking point of “Music Freedom”?

        • Ordeith

          Such hubris, such arrogance, yet so wrong.

          Let’s paste some more, this time from T-Mobile’s own site:

          Will my music streaming be slowed to 2G speeds after reaching a certain data limit?

          No. Music Freedom is just that, the freedom to stream all of the music you want to your smartphone without affecting your 4G LTE data bucket. If you reach your 4G LTE data limit through other means your data will be slowed to 2G speeds but music streaming through included services will not be slowed down.

    • Techngro

      They need to bring back the original downvote system.

  • skittle

    Wait a minute. Lets include the fuller statement of what Jared Newmann said there.

    “And there’s nothing you can do about it. We currently don’t have any net neutrality protections in the United States, and it’s unclear whether wireless Internet will even be included as the FCC draws up new rules that can withstand legal scrutiny. Besides, if enough people feel good about what T-Mobile is doing, it’s hard to imagine regulators getting in the way. T-Mobile tries hard to look like it’s putting an arm over your shoulder, but “music freedom” is actually more of a stranglehold.”

    -Jared Newman, TIME Magazine

    All he has to stand on is his opinion if “We currently don’t have any net neutrality protections in the United States, and it’s unclear whether wireless Internet will even be included as the FCC draws up new rules that can withstand legal scrutiny.”

    So enjoy your streaming everyone !! ;)

    • Ordeith

      “If T-Mobile’s access to streaming services proves successful, and true net neutrality stays dead, it’s likely to become a model for all Internet providers—not just ones sending data to the tiny screens in our pockets.”
      -Aaron Sankin, Daily Dot

      “When the company that provides you access to the internet has the ability to pick the winners and losers for service providers, a key part of what makes the internet so powerful and useful… goes away.”
      -Mick Masnick, Techdirt

      Yea, Enjoy that streaming, but if Net Neutrailty efforts completely collapse in the next few years always remember what that “free” streaming ended up costing you in the end.

  • PiCASSiMO

    Where is SOUNDCLOUD???

  • GinaDee

    Great but I hate when ISP’s (wired or wireless) violate the values of Net Neutrality and give preferential treatment to certain app developers.

    T-Mobile wants to be able to pick winners and losers for wireless data services.

    T-Mobile must be getting paid by these devs for this.

    • steveb944

      As far as I know it’s T-Mobile doing the paying. This issue was brought up in a previous article.

      • Allan

        It’s still bad in the long run. Grouping data and treating each one differently is going to have a negative affect. Consumers will eventually lose with this if T-Mobile keeps it up and other carriers and ISPs follow suit.

        • Ordeith

          So while T-Mobile’s move will be perceived as an altruistic and competitive one — “Music should have no limits,” Legere says — it’s important to look at this as a domino, a seemingly innocuous tile that’s rocking back and forth. At the end of that long domino line lies a weird, broken, disjoint place that looks nothing like the internet we know today.

          -Chris Ziegler, The Verge

        • steveb944

          It’s an inevitable road that we’re going to have to go through because we live in a nation of the blind.

          And by yourself not agreeing with their methods but STILL using their services you’re being a hypocrite. If anything you’re already at a loss by frequenting a fan site of said company you don’t necessary ‘like’.

        • Ordeith

          Both of those positions are just stupid. It is practically impossible to have an association with anything that you agree with 100%. By that litmus every single one of us is a hypocrite. Every company, every organization, every person will eventually do something you don’t like. It would be quite a lonely existence if you disassociated yourself from each of them as soon as they did something you didn’t agree with.
          As for the fan site, I don’t follow. T-Mobile is a corporation. I don’t necessarily “like” or “dislike” them. I can be critical or supportive of what they do depending on how I view the action but it is hard to ascribe such connected emotions to an entity incapable of reciprocation or even concern for how I might view them.

        • steveb944

          So we’re going to resort to the ‘this is stupid’ approach to an argument. To think I actually thought you’d bring valid argument but no you’re just preaching with no substance. You can pull all the quotes you want but all you have is the other side of the coin. I’m not saying I have this completely pessimistic view of the future, but you simply can’t call a differing view from your all knowing one ‘stupid’.

          The issue at hand is specifically their Music Freedom service something that covers about less than 33% of their business in the sense that it relates to mobile data and not their voice or SMS/MMS services. Hardly reaching the 100%. I was basing your ‘dislike’, note again I’m using it in a broad sense, due to your seemingly great disdain towards this telecommunications company presented by yourself on the two most recent articles on the subject. Ultimately you don’t feel that strongly about the issue in order to take proper actions.

          This is a fansite, in case you didn’t know. So to bring such a strong argument about net neutrality to this board is pretty much a waste of time. You should find better means to your battle as by doing so here it falls on deaf ears. Let’s call it the general term used today, trolling.

          Your last point comes to be the same as my initial response, the pessimistic view. I won’t call it stupid as you did, but it’s just your personal view that even if you care about something there’s nothing that can be done. Which we both know isn’t true, anything is possible as long as you try.

        • steveb944

          Oh and I forgot to mention. Yes there are certain corporations that have peeved me enough to not do business with them ever again. But I guess I’m just more strong willed in my choices and not be an enabler. Doesn’t seem too lonely saying no to the big dog as much as I can, I prefer the underdog most of the time.

        • steveb944

          Negative effect is a personal opinion of yours. Most people will look at it as a positive.

          Actually if anything T-Mobile is following suit of other much larger companies already doing similar things in other ISP segments e.g. Comcast.

        • Tim

          You should think more broadly about this. You don’t need an economics degree to see how this can go very badly for the consumer and the market in the long run if T-Mobile makes the wrong moves.

        • steveb944

          Please let me know where I’m showing a narrow point of view. There’s two sides to everything. You DON’T think most people view all these changes and any other ‘freebies’ they get as a positive without thinking twice of it? We live in a nation of the blind leading the blind.

          You don’t need ANY sort of degree to notice the implications of certain actions that corporations take and will thus knowingly/unknowingly affect our future. Some light reading will suffice to see where all this is going. I just hope along the way there’s an alternative, but I doubt it.

    • UMA_Fan

      They said they are NOT getting paid. This is not a net neutrality issue because tmobile offers unrestricted high speed unlimited data as an option.

      Also tmobile doesn’t offer capped data plans anyway. You can still use data after passing your limit. ALL you want. All they did was exempt music streaming from slow speeds.

      • Ordeith

        You say it is not a net neutrality issue and then list two examples of how it is. I don’t think you understand the intentions of net neutrality or the implications of T-Mobile’s reckless abandonment of it.

        • UMA_Fan

          It would be net neutrality if tmobile offered capped data ONLY without throttling and no unlimited option.

  • Clem2011

    They should’ve added Google Play Music first since it was the most requested.

    • JamesG

      It is but its also the most difficult service due to how many google services they have now.

  • anthon

    Is Tunein Radio as part of music freedom does anybody knows?

      Tunein Radio is just a internet radio portal like Shoutcast.

      • izick

        Or like every other music service that is just a portal to access content that’s a server, rather than content that is live streaming.

        Or like iHeart Radio?

        Or both.

      No. It was one of the identified streaming sites where people could vote to add.
      I voted for it, and use it almost daily on my commute to work. It eats a good chunk of my monthly data….
      As “mingkee” wrote it’s a “portal” but it is still streaming audio. T-mo asked us to vote, I voted, now inquiring voters want to see the results.

    What’s the issue with adding Google play I wonder? Anyone know any reason it would be more difficult to add Google Play vs any other service?

    • ChitChatCat

      When Music Freedom first launched, they said there was behind-the-scenes work with the providers to get the streams white-listed (I imagine it requires it be coming from a certain IP range or something so the network knows what it is). Maybe getting that worked out with Google is the slow down.

        I think Google’s Music Match is holding it up. According to T-Mobile “lockered or personal library content” is excluded. So songs you uploaded and possible purchased is excluded. As far as I know none of the other 13 services allow personal uploads or purchases. I imagine it will be difficult to whitelist all access and not personnel content if they are stored on same server. Google would have to change how they store their content. Amazon offer similar service and is probably why they are also not available yet.

    Grooveshark doesn’t even have an iPhone app. So does this mean if you have an iPhone and stream music from Grooveshark on the Safari browser no data from your plan will be used?

    • DirkDigg1er

      Sounds like a good question. You should contact Tmobile CS and inquire further assistance.

      • sanches12

        Ok, so I took your advice and asked a T-Mobile CS rep about my question. She said that if I stream music from Grooveshark on any browser that it will somehow recognize the website on NOT use any data from my plan.

        • ChitChatCat

          I seem to remember that when it launched it had to be from an app, i.e. not pandora(dot)com, etc. But I don’t remember specifically.

        • UMA_Fan

          I’m sure they said it doesn’t count if its the app. Browser data counts because it’s not read as music data.

    Just give me Soundcloud and Amazon Music and I’m goooood.

    Patiently waiting…..

    • FILA

      amazon music with their limited selection.

      • trife

        And with all the “free” digital copies of albums I’ve purchased thru them over the years. I’ve amassed quite a collection of those, so having them all available anywhere is great.

  • Joey

    Please add xbox music!!

  • FILA

    Will this include Google Music that I pre-loaded or just the all access that you have to pay for?

    • Kevin

      According to T-Mobile FAQ it does not include “Lockered or personal library content”. I think this is why it’s taking so long to add Google Music. They probably want to exclude people who uploaded their entire music collection with Google Match (which can include audio books) and only include all access. Even then I wonder if they will exclude offline mode. My all access playlists is over 10GB. If I decide to download entire list over LTE I wonder if it will count towards data limit.

      • skywalkr2

        That doesn’t really make sense. Spotify has every song ever made (it seems)… so why would they restrict you from listening to your own music…?

  • Chris

    I’m looking forward to Google Music and SiriusXM being added at some point.

    • Deadlyforce

      I am also looking for Sirius XM to be added as well!

  • Ryan M.

    Radio Paradise is part of this? Oh W * O * W. Bill is my favorite d-jay.

  • Techngro

    You know what T-Mobile should do to silence all of these idiots b!tching about net neutrality? Just get rid of Music Freedom. Go back to what it was before where you used your plan data for streaming.

  • Alex Zapata

    Oh no…..here come the Net Neutrality fanatics again……

  • anthon

    When are we going to see Tunein radio in that list?

  • sir1jaguar

    The big 3 music streaming – AMAZON Prime Music, XBOX music by Microsoft & Google Play Music – when they will be included in this Music Freedom of T-Mobile…

    Please include them SOON!!!
