Vodacom has entered into a partnership agreement with music streaming service Deezer, Bloomberg has reported.
Citing a person familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported that the year-long exclusive deal will see Vodacom offer its subscribers access to Deezer.
In the terms and conditions section on the Vodacom website, it says that the service is free for the first month and will cost R59.99 per month therafter.
This is not the only deal between Deezer and a Vodafone subsidiary, and it is also not the first time a South African operator has partnered with a streaming music provider.
Earlier this year, German broadcaster ProSiebenSat announced that it acquired a minority stake in Deezer and had struck a deal with Vodafone Germany.
MTN also announced earlier this year that it had struck a deal with Simfy Africa, offering its subscribers access to Simfy’s “Premium Plus” service for R49/month, which is R10 less than the normal monthly fee.
