Vid?otron also stated on day of annoucement that they were opened to
any/all music streaming services and not selective. But fine print is
important here because they do "vet" music streaming services and the
carrier wants to ensure they are "legal" in canada (music rights), are
not a radio station (aka: onwer by competitor telco who owns most radio
statiosn in markets where Vid?otron operates) and a whole buch other
There is PR to make "zero rating" look good, and then there is fine

In the case of Vid?otron, the zero-rated music is available only on
their highest priced services and is a marketing scheme to increase
AREPU by inciting customers to upgrade to more expensive service.
