Smart is broadening its music portfolio with the introduction of premium bundles for global music-streaming service Deezer which is great news to the music listening market in the Philippines.
The announcement of the Deezer bundles complements Smart’s homegrown music service SPINNR, which offers song downloads for as low as Php10 and music streaming for just Php2.50 per day, roughly equivalent to the value of three text messages.
“Deezer completes Smart’s music portfolio as we strive to provide the complete music experience to all kinds of users,” said Charles A. Lim, EVP and Head of the Wireless Consumer Division at Smart.
“SPINNR provides the total music experience to our subscribers with streaming and downloads of all the latest and hottest songs, the most anticipated concert events, meet-and-greets with their favorite artists and exclusive access to official merchandise. Deezer, on the other hand, provides music streaming with a large catalog of 30 million songs and the widest availability in more than 100 countries around the world,” Lim added.
As you can see , this chart shows the advantage of Deezer over Others. I have Spotify and I love it but reading Deezer’s advantages makes me want to download Deezer on my Smart Postpaid phone.
Deezer offers, with over 30 million songs and powerful music discovery solutions, will initially be available to Smart Postpaid subscribers through Unlisurf Premium Plans starting at just P1,175 a month, bundled with the year’s latest smartphones and unlimited LTE surfing.
With its new Unlisurf Premium Plans, It is now bundled with the latest smartphones with a free Deezer Premium+ subscription for two years, unlimited surfing with access to LTE, plus free calls and texts to all networks.
