Spotify, the world conquering music streaming service, is now available through the Virgin Media Tivo set-top box.
Great news for folks planning on blasting out their favourite tunes in their living rooms (particularly if they’ve got home cinema set-ups sorted) Virgin will be bundling Spotfiy Premium deals in with their mobile and broadband contracts.
New and existing Virgin Media fibre optic subscribers will nab 6 months worth of the Premium version of the streaming service for free, an offer worth £59.94 if purchased separately.
Virgin Media pay monthly mobile users get 3 months of the Premium service, worth £29.97, and have the added benefit of incurring zero data charges for streaming tracks over 3G while on their network.
Cindy Rose, executive director of digital entertainment at Virgin Media said: “Our goal to deliver a truly unique experience for our customers and we’re really excited about bringing Spotify to our TiVo service as part of our ongoing initiatives to develop the platform further with new features, applications and content.”
Spotify’s Andreas Liffgarden, global head of telecom business development added: “What used to be a big cube is now a flat screen connected to the speakers and surround sound system in your home. Since we like our users to enjoy the world’s best music under the best possible conditions, it made perfect sense for us to develop this great Spotify app for Virgin Media TiVo.”
You can find the new Spotify app in the games and apps area of your Tivo box menu.
