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.

Ericsson re­cently won the LTE Asia award in the cat­e­gory of ‘Big­gest Con­tri­bu­tion to 5G De­vel­op­ment'.

The com­pany's ini­tia­tive has al­ready been de­ployed in sev­eral coun­tries, in­clud­ing Ja­pan, South Korea, Swe­den, and the U.S. “Be­ing rec­og­nized by industry an­a­lysts for the big­gest con­tri­bu­tion to 5G de­vel­op­ment is a great val­i­da­tion of the lead­er­ship po­si­tion that Ericsson has staked out in 5G. Ericsson 5G ra­dio test beds are be­ing de­ployed for op­er­a­tors world­wide. In less than a year, test beds moved out of the lab and into live in­door and out­door

net­work en­vi­ron­ments in Ja­pan, Swe­den and the U.S., where they can in­te­grate with LTE net­works,” said Thomas Norén, Vice Pres­i­dent and Head of Ra­dio Prod­uct Man­age­ment,
