Yesterday, we let you in on Music+, MTN’s possible foray into the music streaming space. It turns out it was more fact than fiction.

Here are screenshots from a working beta version of the app on Android.

What we know about Music+

Music+ is still in beta testing phase so while the information we share below is true, there’s a possibility things might be different on public launch.

  • Users have to register with an MTN number (obviously) to download or stream music. Registration is free.

  • You can choose between streaming music or downloading for offline use.
  • Offline downloads cost N50 per track
  • For users who choose to stream, there are 6 flexible ‘Music VIP’ Plans you can subscribe to. These plans will let you stream music free of data charge.
  • The lowest VIP Plan costs N100 for 3 full days of free online music streaming . You also get 20% discount on offline downloads and 30 MB bonus data.
  • The highest VIP Plan costs N800 for a month of free streaming,  discounts on offline downloads and 500 MB bonus data

It looks like MTN have something really great going here, if they can pull it off. A regular 500 MB monthly data plan costs N2000 on MTN. Music+ will give you the same data allowance for N800 and you won’t have to expend a single MB streaming music through the app. Amazing stuff, again if MTN can really pull it off

According to our source, Music+ will launch publicly this month and will be available for iPhone, Blackberry, Asha and possibly Windows Phone. We will keep our ears close to the ground for any relevant updates
