Starting August 16th, Verizon's unlimited subscribers get six free months of Apple Music
If you're a new or existing subscriber to one of Verizon Wireless' unlimited plans, you are eligible to receive half a year of Apple Music for free. Now, if you have never subscribed to Apple Music before, you're entitled to a free three month trial anyway. Still, let's not look a gift horse in the mouth. Verizon customers taking advantage of Apple's largesse will be able to stream tunes over 4G, or Wi-Fi and even download songs for playback later. Apple Music currently has a library of 45 million tunes that subscribers can select from.

For years, Verizon has been associated with Android through various exclusives with Motorola. And while the Pixel handsets can be used with all four major stateside providers, the only carrier it can be purchased from in the U.S. is Verizon. The Pixel handsets are the quintessential Android phones. But Big Red is planning on offering more exclusives from Cupertino. Angie Klein, VP of marketing at Verizon, hints that more Apple promotions are coming to Verizon. 

The six free months of Apple Music will become available to Verizon's unlimited subscribers starting on August 16th. A promotion like this could end up helping Apple Music extend its lead over rival streamer Spotify in the battle over which music streamer has the most paid subscribers in the U.S.

If you want to resort to using Apple music, buy a $100 android and keep creating a new apple id after each free trial.

Wouldn't that cost more than the $10/month over three or six months????
