AT&T is ready to sweeten the deal for some of its monthly subscribers by offering free Spotify premium as of its new entertainment perks.

The carrier revealed its new entertainment perks today that also gives customers the option to choose HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz or Pandora as their free entertainment options. Even if you don’t have a qualifying wireless plan, you can still get some other Spotify perks.

AT&T’s free Spotify offer is available to subscribers on the &More Premium wireless plan that costs $80 per month. Other AT&T subscribers can get a free six-month trial to Spotify premium. After the trial ends you can keep it going by paying $9.99 per month.

“We’re excited to begin this new relationship with AT&T to provide millions of their customers with a seamless listening experience and easy access to more than 50 million tracks, billions of playlists and a variety of podcasts wherever they are,” said Spotify vp of premium partnerships, Marc Hazan.

Spotify’s partnership with AT&T comes after Verizon partnered with Apple Music. Verizon customers with Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited plans can get Apple Music for free. AT&T’s perks might be a bit more impressive to subscribers though because they include HBO and other entertainment options.

The new entertainment perks will be available starting on August 6.
