New deal allows music fans to stream songs through their TV
Spotify have signed a deal with Virgin Media which will allow their users to stream music through their TVs, internet and mobile phones.
The deal is the streaming service’s first with an internet service provider.
The service will be integrated into Virgin‘s web and mobile platforms with the same price brackets of £4.99 and £9.99 that are already offered to Spotify subscribers.
Virgin customers will also be able to access the company’s 13-million song library through their TV.
Andreas Liffgarden, director of business development at the streaming service, said: “By teaming up with Virgin Media we’re giving millions more people across the UK the chance to enjoy all the world’s music at their fingertips, however they choose to listen to it – be that on their computer, mobile, and for the first time through their TV.”
Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media, added: “Spotify will help our customers to fill their world with music, whether it’s at home or on the go, and provide a unique way to get even more out of Virgin Media‘s leading digital services.”
Earlier this year it was strongly rumoured that Spotify was set to be launched as a music streaming service within Facebook.
