Smart launches PH's first mobile-linked music service
MANILA, Philippines - Smart Communications recently launched SPINNR, the country's first mobile-linked music service.
SPINNR offers not just music downloads but also unlimited music streaming and playlist customization and access. SPINNR can be accessed on web and mobile browser.
"When we introduced Smart Music, we promised to give Filipino music fans not just the most affordable music downloads and the largest music catalog, but also the total music experience... SPINNR is the fulfillment of that promise, and we're excited to introduce this service that will further infuse music in the Filipinos' way of life," said Charles A. Lim, Smart's executive vice president and head of wireless consumer business.
With SPINNR, Smart will be the first to offer in the country a music-streaming subscription service with unlimited access to more than 3 million songs from the catalogs of MCA Music, Inc. (internationally known as Universal Music Group, Inc.); and Sony Music Entertainment, through a partnership with local licensee Ivory Music and Video.
SPINNR is offering first-time users to enjoy unlimited music streaming at no cost for their first 15 days. This is open to all Smart, Talk 'N Text and Sun Cellular subscribers via web or mobile browser or via the app from Google Play.
"For just P15 for two weeks, that's P1 a day, SPINNR users can easily subscribe to a package via the site or the app to enjoy unlimited full-track streaming of the widest selection of songs," said Mellissa Limcaoco, head of Smart's Innovation and Product Development group.
The SPINNR Plus 15 package also offers a 20% discount for full song downloads, which already cost only P10 to P15 a song. Other packages are SPINNR Plus 7 (P7 for 7 days, with 10% download discount) and SPINNR Plus Premium (P29 for 30 days, with 30% download discount).
The SPINNR Plus VIP (P49 for 30 days) offers 50% song download discounts plus first and exclusive access to Smart Music's events, promos and other perks.
"By linking your Smart, Talk 'N Text or Sun Cellular mobile number, you can securely log-in and avail of subscription packages and purchase songs by paying through your prepaid load or charging to your postpaid bill. No need for credit cards," she added.
