In New York City on April 29th, Sprint and Spotify are expected to announce a partnership, similar to the deal that AT&T has with Beats Music
. Spotify is expected to offer some Sprint customers a discount on the music streamer's regular $9.99 a month price. In addition, Sprint customers will be able to pay for the service right on their monthly Sprint bill. But if you're circling the date on your calendar, better use a pencil. There could be a delay in trying to get all of the necessary record labels to sign off on the deal.
The deal between AT&T and Beats allows 5 people to share the service for $15 a month. Sprint plans on doing something similar with its Framily plan, which allows up to ten people to join together to get a discount on pricing.
Spotify is believed to have about 9 million subscribers worldwide and if this deal with Sprint does go through, that number is sure to get a boost. And that increase could be huge, if Spotify decides to offer some free trials to Sprint customers.
