MTN has just announced a new, mobile and desktop music streaming service to rival the likes of Deezer (available on the Vodacom network) called MTN Music+.
It offers prepaid and contract customers song and album downloads on desktop, mobile web or via an app for iOS, Android, Nokia Asha and selected BlackBerry phones.
“MTN Music+ seeks to develop local content and give aspiring artists a platform to showcase their talent to a captive audience of millions of users across the continent. Music+ expands the artists’ distribution footprint beyond the narrow confines of their home markets and beyond conventional means. We are pleased to avail this service which we believe will contribute to the development of music across the continent,” MTN SA chief marketing officer Larry Annetts said in a statement.
There are three different subscription price plans to choose between. You can either pay R10 for a three day subscription that gives you 50MBs of data, R25 a week with 150MB of data or R49 a month with 500MB of data.
Once you’ve downloaded and subscribed to MTN Music+ you can share music and videos with friends on social media or send them content as a gift. You can also rack up loyalty points which you can redeem for downloads or data.
Visit the MTN Music+ website if you’re using a desktop or a Nokia, if you’re on mobile you can either get via mobile web by SMSing the keyword ‘Music’ to 5900 or downloading it for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.
