CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, at Un-carrier NEXT, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) brought in the noise … and also the funk … with upgraded music experiences for Un-carrier customers. Through a new partnership with Pandora, the #1 music streaming service in the U.S., T-Mobile customers now get exclusive access to a free Pandora Plus subscription all year long – courtesy of T-Mobile. And when your favorite artists come to town, you’ve got the magenta hookup. In another first for the Un-carrier, T-Mobile announced an exclusive multi-year partnership with Live Nation, the world’s largest live entertainment company, giving Un-carrier customers rock star status at Live Nation amphitheater and arena concerts, including access to last-minute reserve seats in sold-out sections and discounted tickets. And starting next year, your T-Mobile phone will unlock more exclusive benefits just for T-Mobile customers!
“Our customers get treated like rock stars with Team of Experts, and we believe they ought to be treated like that everywhere they go,” said Mike Sievert, President and COO at T-Mobile. “Music connects us, so we’re connecting our rock star customers with exclusive magenta extras at Live Nation events and with Pandora. Now, when they turn on their tunes or head to a show, they’ll get an elevated experience, just for being with T-Mobile. We’re always looking to thank our customers in bigger, bolder ways…this latest move is no exception – and we won’t stop!”
All the Music, All the Time
Pandora pioneered music streaming. Now, T-Mobile customers score a free subscription to Pandora Plus! That’s unlimited ad-free music and higher quality audio for some serious ear candy, all year long. Now, T-Mobile account holders will get unlimited skips, replays, personalized stations and offline listening -- and no ads -- just for being magenta.
“We are committed to creating exciting new opportunities for more people to find, share, and listen to the music they love,” said Pandora CEO Roger Lynch. “Through this exclusive offer, we will give T-Mobile’s massive customer-base access to one of our most in-demand offerings - Pandora Plus. This is just the first step in a larger strategic partnership between T-Mobile and Pandora. Expect to hear more.”
Magenta Carpet Treatment at Live Shows
Live Nation is the hands-down leader in live music and, with T-Mobile, your concert experience is getting a serious upgrade.
“T-Mobile and Live Nation are creating new ways for our fans to enjoy live concerts with exclusive access and perks only this partnership could make possible,” said Russell Wallach, Global President Media & Sponsorship, Live Nation. “As fans experience this new level of access, word will quickly spread, because the power of live music is contagious and can’t be matched.”

- Tickets to Sold-Out Reserved Seating. Forgot to get tickets when they first went on sale? Calendar freed up and your favorite artist is in town?
