Spotify coming to Samsung TVs

Samsung has entered into a partnership with music streaming giant Spotify that will see the service added to Samsung’s range of Smart TVs, Blu-Ray players and home theatre systems.

Last month, we reported that Spotify had plans to enter the TV market with a brand new video on demand service.

Those plans were a bit tentative but it now looks like Spotify will be arriving in people’s living rooms a bit earlier than we thought and in the more usual music streaming guise.

Owners of Samsung connected TV products will soon be able to access Spotify’s library of millions of songs from their TVs.

Pascal de Mul, Global Head of Hardware Partnerships at Spotify said: “It’s our dream to make all the world’s music available instantly to everyone, everywhere. Bringing our service to Samsung Smart TVs is taking us another step closer to turning this dream into reality.”

The service will be available across Europe via an app that will launch initially on the 2012 E Series Samsung Smart TVs, with other devices to follow.

To log in and gain access to the 18 million tracks you will need a Spotify Premium subscription. A one month’s free trial will be available.
