I am no lover of Microsoft but since my 3 months for 99p with Google Play expired I have been very keen to find a new music streaming service I can mooch off. Today I received an email from Microsoft that you could get 4 months free streaming with their Groove service. I signed up (paid with PayPal) and it seems OK.
The deal seems to be that you sign up for one month that is free and at some point during August you will receive a promotional code that gives you an extra 3 months free. Normally it costs £8.99 a month and of course you'll automatically be charged unless you cancel it. I set a reminder on my computer to warn me.
