T-Mobile announced the first major expansion to its Music Freedom program with the addition of six new music streaming services – AccuRadio, Black Planet, Grooveshark, Radio Paradise, Rdio and Songza – are all available as part of T-Mobile’s Music Freedom.

Additionally, T-Mobile announced the winner of its social voting poll to let customers decide which services they wanted to add next. After nearly three-quarters of a million people voted, Google Play Music topped the charts as the most requested service. T-Mobile is on track to add Google Play Music to the Music Freedom program later this year.
“When the big ‘carriers’ look at music, they see an opportunity to use someone’s passion to make a buck. When the Un-carrier looks at music, we see an opportunity to set customers free from the tolls and limitations those carriers impose,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Our goal is nothing less than to set all your music free, and we’re well on our way.”
“T-Mobile’s Music Freedom and services like Grooveshark are about bringing music accessibility to the consumer,” said Sam Tarantino, Co-founder and CEO of Grooveshark, “Together with Music Freedom, Grooveshark is creating a new kind of music discovery on T-Mobile devices. We believe the combined global audiences of millions represents a new and engaged audience for Grooveshark on T-Mobile.”
The new services join iHeartRadio, iTunesRadio, Pandora, Rhapsody, Samsung Milk, Slacker and Spotify already included in Music Freedom.
