MTN Introduces Music Streaming Service MusicTime

MTN has announced the arrival of music streaming service MusicTime, which it proudly refers to as "a world first offering" from its crafty team at Simfy Africa.

According to a statement issued by MTN, MusicTime is a time-based music streaming option that offers users first-class trending and locally relevant music through collaborations with leading music labels and providers.

Last month Rob Shuter, MTN group’s CEO and president, announced that the mobile operator had bought the music-streaming business Simfy Africa.

MTN’s statement announced that the addition of MusicTime to their offering would revolutionise Africa's music sector with a totally inclusive music streaming offering that includes top trending music, a countdown timer, and data that is included in the price.
The telco explained that the purpose of the timer was to clock down as users listen to music.

The Executive for Corporate Affairs at MTN SA, Jacqui O'Sullivan said that MTN had worked tirelessly at getting this breakthrough model to its customers.
She noted that data costs and the exorbitant costs of the leading music streaming products meant that the majority of MTN’s customers didn’t have an affordable option for digital music. This is what motivated Simfy Africa to come up with MusicTime as the solution.

MusicTime is available right now as either a 120 minutes offering or a 300 minutes offering; both offerings are valid for seven days from purchase.

Prepaid customers can now purchase music time using their airtime. All new users will also receive 60 minutes free, valid for seven days when they download the MusicTime App.

MTN says the MusicTime catalogue has millions of tracks that are available for streaming on both Android and iOS.
