Telstra has struck a deal to resell Apple Music

Tesltra has landed a deal with Apple to offer its iPhone mobile customers 12 month Apple Music memberships.

Apple Music, the company’s response to streaming service Spotify, was launched last month and it’s had mixed reviews. Some have absolutely savaged the streaming service, while others have made the switch and said they wouldn’t go back to Spotify.

Telstra‚Äôs offer of a one-year membership to Apple Music is available to Telstra post-paid customers using iPhone with a 12 or 24 month Go Mobile Plan. When the time’s up, customers will be charged a monthly membership of $11.99, billed straight to their Telstra account.

Telstra has been working on offering more content to its customers. Last week it axed its personal video recorder T-Box, replacing it with a streaming device similar to Apple TV to deliver on-demand content direct to your television.

There have also been reports that Telstra has been in talks with Netflix after the streaming company’s exclusive deal with Singtel-Optus finished up after three months.
