Verizon extends free Apple Music subscription for some Unlimited plans indefinitely

Verizon extends free Apple Music subscription for some Unlimited plans indefinitely

Our customers loved the offer, so we're expanding the value of our Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited plans by including Apple Music at the same plan price.

Normally, an Apple Music subscription would run the fairly standard $9.99 per month, so if you're a fan of the service, this a good deal. Two weeks ago, it cut its revenue forecast, blaming iPhone sales in China.

Last year Verizon announced that they would be giving away six months of Apple Music for free to Unlimited customers. Customers on the lower tiered Go Unlimited plan are still eligible for the six month Apple Music trial.

Verizon's new Apple Music tariff will be offered to the public from tomorrow (January 17).

Verizon will reportedly make an announcement in the coming days.

A Beyond Unlimited plan costs $85 per month with auto pay and paper-free billing.

While a free offer for subscribers is certainly a winning business proposition for Verizon, Apple stands to gain from this partnership too. AT&T, meanwhile, provides free live TV to unlimited customers as well as a choice of streaming services that includes HBO and Amazon Music. However, the more you spend, the better perks you get, including higher "Premium" data caps and more data allowance for mobile hotspot use.

Verizon's Beyond Unlimited plan starts at costs of $50 per month, per line, while Above Unlimited starts at costs $60 per month, per line (both plus taxes).
