SPINNR Turns One And Smart Celebrates By Launching Unlimited Free Radio

One year ago, Smart Communications launched SPINNR, the homegrown, original music streaming app that gives users access to millions of tracks. To celebrate the occasion, the company not only threw a party, but also launched a surprise birthday gift for all its users: Unlimited, free radio. Read on to find out more!

71 Gramercy was the venue for SPINNR’s first birthday party, where Smart management, select members of the media and a good few VIPs gathered to celebrate this exciting milestone of what has become an extremely popular music streaming service with over 300,000 subscribers and over 3,000,000 unique visitors.

Of course, SPINNR is much more than just a music app, and the SPINNR Experience – as the Smart marketing boffins have christened it – with events like the Fly-Off series, meet-and-greets, music festivals and big concerts, has turned the dreams of thousands of fans into reality. Not only does the service deliver daily value-for-money and instant music escapes by hosting millions of tracks – including many OPM hits – in its growing catalogue, but it also managed to literally link Filipino fans to music biggies like Red Hot Chili Peppers, One Republic, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, John Legend, Ariana Grande, Rihanna and Eminem to name but a few.

To celebrate its success thus far, and to ensure the music-streaming-slash-music-experience app continues to go strong, Smart used the birthday party to launch SPINNR Radio. Product manager Lucille Tang was at hand to explain what it’s all about: “Now, subscribers can free-flowingly listen to tracks or choose a playlist that will excite them within SPINNR Radio without spending anything for data or even a music subscription,” announced Tang. “This new feature harks back to the time when listeners are fed the kind of songs they want in a continuous flow much like how we enjoyed radio. It’s as if listeners are allowing SPINNR to mirror their taste by serving up playlists to them, absolutely free.”

SPINNR certainly has done a lot towards introducing music streaming to the mainstream market in the Philippines, and with the addition of SPINNR Radio, Smart is taking free music listening to a whole new level by providing free and unlimited radio access to music without any data subscription being required. 

Listening to music is good, but listening to your favorite music for free is even better and SPINNR Radio enables you to do exactly that. Its launch is no doubt another advance in the telecoms data arms race that we have seen recently, the big winner of which will be the consumer, and that is certainly something to celebrate. Here’s to another year of SPINNR, streaming music, and many more exciting things ahead!
