Here's how Sprint can save you money on Spotify

Sprint today as part of its announcement of the exclusive Harman/Kardon edition of the HTC One M8 also announced a new deal for Spotify subscriptions — if you're on Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone 8.1.

All new and existing postpaid (ie not pre-paid) Sprint customers will get six free months of Spotify Premium, if you're on a "Framily" plan. And Sprint's extended the deal to those on Android and iOS, of course.

And after the initial six months, you'll get a discount on your Spotify subscription, which varies depending on your level of Framliness.

Here's the deal.

And that's it. The whole thing starts this Friday, May 2.

  • Now... If they just could get their network to be better and offer decent Windows Phones, it might be a good deal.... Nahhhhh... jk
  • I love my neo!   I would like it more if they had usable data in areas like the beltway, downtown, staduims, malls..
  • Cool
  • Sonera has had the same 6 months for free for any customer in Finland for a while.
  • I loved Spotify when I had it but I don't really miss sprint and their selection of windows phones was a joke which is another reason I left when I went from WebOs to WP but this is a good deal for people still on sprint
  • I was on WebOS for sooo long I but the Sprint rates were the best for me. I had the same issue with the WP selection, but am now happy with my Ativ S Neo....wish they had a 1020 or Icon, though.
  • The only thing I want from Sprint is some high end windows phones and a reliable network. Is that too much to ask for?
  • What's with the markup text in the article?
  • Spotify have promised to update their Windows Phone app for a while. Its poorly made and there is no way to listen to songs without a Premium Account. Until then...
  • When Sprint was the only unlimited data around they were an option but the network degraded so badly during my 2-year contract that I eager to jump to T-Mobile.
  • Now if only sprint didn't have really slow service and a decent windows phone selection
  • It's a shame Sprint doesn't carry any Nokia Lumias because then, all users would have to do is use offline mixes on Nokia MixRadio.
  • Sprint completely fails at Windows Phone. So who really cares here. My coworker wants a Windows Phone, but isn't getting one yet because Sprint's selection is so bad.
  • I've been tweeting Sprint asking them if they're going to get Nokia phones and they just keep sending me to their site.  I've asked them a few times this year.  Everyone on here should just pester them about high end Nokia Windows Phones.  It may not work but who knows...a tweet only takes a couple seconds.
  • Good idea! Tell them to bring us a Lumia 1020! Where can I tweet??
  • On twitter just search for Sprint.  
  • I went crazy for a split second when I saw the word Spotify in the title :(
  • Same :/ An updated Spotify app is the only thing I'm currently holding out for...
  • Not even close  to get me back on the Hover network.
  • Um I think they need a better phone selection first for WP. I dunno just my two cents.
  • Yippeeeeee
  • Why's all that code showing up in the article when on the WPCentral WP app? I don't see it in the website.
  • The new firefox is pretty awesome.
