Tesco Mobile to duet with Blinkbox for a summer of free music

Once active customers will receive a unique blinkbox music code to access the service for free

Tesco Mobile is enabling customers to enjoy all of their favourite music for free this summer by partnering with Blinkbox music.

The announcement means those upgrading to a Samsung S5, HTC M8 or Sony Z2 on pay monthly will automatically receive three months’ worth of free music via the Blinkbox music app.

Simon Groves, chief marketing officer for Tesco Mobile, commented: “With the World Cup and wonderful weather on our doorstep the summer playlist is a vital addition to ensuring maximum fun in the sun. Our customers loved it when we teamed up with Blinkbox movies so this time we're joining forces to give away free music all summer long with some of the best-selling smartphones around.”

Customers will be able to stream music using Tesco’s 4G network at no extra cost (when available), or listen offline by saving their favourite stations.

Especially for the summer blinkbox has launched a number of themed stations (e.g. summer festival line-ups) as well as playlists curated by music heroes including the Kaiser Chiefs, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, and Kylie Minogue.

The promotion will run from now until Sunday 20 July.
