SEATTLE (AP) — T-Mobile is jumping into the music streaming game with a price and a package of features that set it apart.

The fourth-ranked mobile carrier said at an event Wednesday that customers of its Simple Choice plan will be able to stream music from popular services like Pandora, Spotify, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio, iTunes Radio and Slacker without it counting against their high-speed data caps.

It also unveiled a new service called unRadio that features streaming Internet radio without ads. The service provided by Rhapsody lets users skip tracks an unlimited number of times and download 25 songs to the device for playback.

T-Mobile's highest-tier customers will get unRadio for free. It's $4 a month for other T-Mobile subscribers and $5 a month otherwise.
