Spotify hits Samsung Smart TVs

Samsung_spotify-tv.jpgSpotify is expanding its reach ever further, today revealing a new partnership that will see the music streaming service invade living rooms housing Samsung Smart TVs.

Rolling out across October and kicking off with the Series 7 and Series 8 TV models, the announcement makes Samsung the first TV manufacturer to “bring Spotify to the big screen”.

It’s not, however, the first time Spotify has been available through a TV. Both Virgin Media Tivo boxes and select Onkyo home cinema receivers give access to the streaming service.

The app will also eventually be available through Samsung’s other web connected devices, including Blu-ray players and home theatre sets.

“The television is at the heart of most people’s home entertainment experience, so it is a natural fit to make our music service available on internet-connected Smart TVs,” said Pascal de Mul, Spotify’s global head of hardware partnerships.

Spotify for Samsung TVs is free to download, though you’ll need a £9.99 per month subscription to actually use it. Might also need to take into account the few extra pence-per month needed to keep your telly on to listen, too!
