Orange Youth plan subscribers in Switzerland are in for a musical treat, as the carrier has announced that it has started bundling Spotify Premium with all of its Orange Young plans, effectively allowing subscribers to pay as little as 29 francs per month or about $31 to access Spotify Premium – that's the monthly cost of their chosen mobile subscription, not the cost of Spotify Premium, which is included as a free service. This promo is a first in Switzerland and applies to all three Orange Young plans, including the most expensive one that costs 79 francs or about $85 per month.
The first Orange Young plan is the least expensive one of all. It's called Orange Young Star and it comes with unlimited calls and texts as well as 1GB of mobile data. Meanwhile, there's a second plan called Orange Young Galaxy, and it comes with unlimited calls and texts along with 3GB of mobile data. Finally, the third and most expensive Orange Young plan comes with unlimited calls and texts plus 10GB of mobile data, and it's called Orange Young Universe. All three plans now include Spotify Premium subscriptions that will allow users to enjoy music streaming without hitting their monthly bandwith caps.
Back in November last year, we saw how Spotify teamed up with Sprint to provide a carrier billing option that allowed Premium subscribers to pay their $10 monthly subscription fee through their Sprint bills. Today's news is an indication that Spotify is still working continuously to make things easier in more ways for its users around the world.
It's not clear whether or not a similar deal is being cooked up by Spotify to be served elsewhere in the world. But a free Premium subscription to its music streaming service would surely be a welcome addition to just about any mobile data plan, provided that the price is right. For those outside of Switzerland, you can still get a free taste of what Spotify offers by downloading the official Spotify app through Google Play.
