US-based music subscription service MOG has launched in Australia, offering Telstra customers and Bigpond music account holders unlimited access to on-demand music.

MOG and Telstra announced the exclusive partnership earlier this year, providing ad-free, unlimited and on-demand music to Australian customers that can be accessed and streamed to their smartphone, tablet, computer or smart TV via an internet connection for a monthly fee.

The music service includes features such as personalised recommendations based on your listening habits and Facebook music ‘likes’ and ‘radio stations’ for artists featured in MOG’s catalogue.

MOG is available to Telstra customers and listeners who have a Big Pond Music account. Telstra customers have access to unmetered streaming and downloading, meaning music played from mobile devices will not affect user data plans.

MOG offers a two-week free trial for Australian customers, with the option to upgrade and subscribe to the service with one of two plans. Mog Basic costs $6.99 per month and offers subscribers unlimited ad-free access to more than 16 million songs online via MOG’s web players or desktop clients for Mac and Windows. Mog Premium costs $11.99 per month with unlimited, ad-free access to the service’s music database online via web players or desktop clients for Mac and Windows and through mobile devices including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch other, tablets and Sonos players.

    It seemed like a good deal at the time and as a Telstra Broadband and Mobile customer was about to sign. What attracted me over the others was the no impact on my data usage. There is a catch to this – steaming on the mobile network drops to 48kps which is just not good enough for music. Although only applies to the 3G network it is still a restriction that wont make me move from Spotify.

  2. James says:

    Very unhappy with poor quality over 3g. Also very ambiguous information out there about if it is unmetered for telstra customers using the iphone app or just the website??
