Details of premium Samsung Milk Music service begin to trickle outAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
When Samsung introduced Milk Music earlier this year, it said that the streaming service would be both free of charge and ad-free for a limited time. Now that Milk Music has been around for a little over a month, Samsung has begun to hint at what we can expect from the premium version of the service.
In a post on its official Samsung Tomorrow blog, Samsung has revealed that it’s planning a “Premium Service” version of Milk Music that’ll be available soon for $3.99. The company says that this premium flavor of Milk will be free of ads and will include “exclusive features,” but there’s no mention of exactly what these features might be. Meanwhile, a “Basic Service” version of Milk Music will be free but will include ads.
It’s no surprise to learn that Samsung is prepping a paid, premium version of Milk Music. After all, not only do most other music streaming services have a premium version, but I’m sure that Sammy would like to make a couple of bucks off of Milk as well.
The interesting part of Milk’s premium tier is that it’s priced at $3.99, while the majority of other premium music services cost $9.99. We don’t yet know exactly what your $3.99 will get you, but for anyone that owns a Milk-compatible device — like the Galaxy S III, S 4, S5, Note II and Note 3 — this premium version of Milk may be worth keeping an eye on.
Have any of you tried out Milk Music yet? If so, what do you think of it?
