Sprint-Spotify tie-up could include discounted Framily group access

Sprint customers may soon be receiving a discount on Spotify, as part of a deal between the two companies, according to a report. An announcement by the carrier, allegedly scheduled to take place on April 29 in New York alongside its expected HD Voice launch, will apparently see Sprint customers receiving free trials of Spotify Premium, with some carrier subscribers potentially qualifying for Spotify discounts.

Sources of Recode claim the agreement between the two will allow customers to subscribe to the music service using Sprint's billing system, with customers on the Framily plan likely to see a discounted Spotify group plan being made available. While seemingly straightforward, the service could face delays, as it apparently needs approval from record labels, because of music licensing issues. Sprint and Spotify representatives are not commenting on the rumor.

The Sprint and Spotify tie-up is similar to an earlier offer between AT&T and Beats that started in January. For $15 per month, AT&T provides unlimited streaming and offline music for up to five people on the same family plan, with a 90-day trial also offered.
