RIM Promoting BBM Music With Extended Free Trials in 5 Countries

BBM Music

I have always though that RIM should simply have launched BBM Music as a free service to entice people to buy BlackBerrys and hook them even more to BBM with a service others like WhatsApp cannot do. Hell at least offer a free level of service with music that is ad supported using your own advertising service! Either way it looks like RIM is plowing forward with free trials instead. Carolyn from RIM announced on RIM’s blog that they are continuing to extend the free trials for BBM Music.

They noted that during the month of February 2012, you can download BBM Music FREE for up to 4 months in Canada or the US, or FREE for up to 6 months in the UK, Spain & Italy. I am not sure why Mexico, Netherlands, and Australia don’t deserve free trials but I hope they are working on it.

Either way if you have not checked out BBM Music with your friends yet check out the details on BBM Music 1.1 over at

  1. BBM Music needs to be understood! This is what RIM needs to communicate to folks. It is really a different way to enjoy music you don’t own.

    It is not a place to download a ton of music from your friends to keep, but instead it is a music sharing service between you and your friends! The more friends you have the more music you can share.

    I think BBM Music is perfect for discovering new music and sharing it between friends.

    Once you find something you like, you might still want to buy it, but at least you got the opportunity to listen to it and discover new tracks as long as you’re paying for the service.

  2. I don’t think they got the message, Pandora and Slacker are already on the market for a while and it’s just a matter of time before they add BBM connection and sharing.
    It’s not like sharing wasn’t there in the first place…

  3. I agree with your suggestion. RIM should give BBM free to sell phones. just raise the blackberry feee by 50 cents a month, no one would even notice.
