Digi Extends Free Trial Period for its Music Freedom Service
In an effort to garner more listeners and users to its music service, Digi has effectively extended the trial period of the Digi Music Freedom service.
The service has been extended until December 31, 2015, meaning that Digi subscribers, whose current free trial that are set to expire before the end of the year, can continue using the service for free until then.
Along with the announcement, Digi also took the liberty to announce that it has added two more music streaming services into its list of partners: Samsung Milk Music and MixRadio. These new partners effectively join Digi's already long list of streaming partners, which include the likes of TIDAL, Guvera, JOOX, Spotify, and Deezer, to name a few.
“These new partnerships clearly underline Digi's determination to look for opportunities to partner with more top music discovery and streaming service providers who bring the biggest song catalogues and widest variety of content to our customers. This announcement is perfectly timed as we are also announcing the extension of our free trial period for Digi Music Freedom – our offering that allows customers to enjoy their favorite music worry-free with zero internet charges,” said Praveen Rajan, Digi's Head of Postpaid & Digital Services.
Digi users can download the app to their devices, which is available on Apple App Store and Google Play.
