Spotify Arrives On TiVo

Last June Virgin Media announced a deal with Spotify had

been inked and at the end of October the company launched the new service

offering some customers up to six months free Spotify streaming.

Those customers who have now signed up to the Spotify

service through Virgin Media have one more way of accessing their favourite

tunes. From today TiVo customers will begin to see a Spotify app appearing on

their apps menu.

The app will only let those with a Spotify Premium account

access the music through the TiVo service with all the same features as the

Spotify app on your smartphone.

Cindy Rose, executive director of digital entertainment at

Virgin Media said: “The world of digital entertainment is continually changing

and we’re always looking at ways we can bring our customers the best

entertainment for their whole families. 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.”

The Spotify partnership will see new Virgin Media broadband

customers signing up to the 30Mb, 50Mb or 100Mb services or existing customers

of these services who sign a new 12-month contract getting six months free

Spotify Premium.

TiVo customers will have noticed that their service has been

given an update in the past week or so, with the addition of new apps, easier

series link settings and the ability to access BBC catch-up services directly

from the EPG.

As well as offering deals to their broadband customers,

Virgin are offering new mobile customers a free month of Spotify Premium and

customers will be able to stream or download Spotify music through their Virgin

Mobile without using any of their mobile data allowance, eliminating any data

charges when streaming music on the go.

Will you be rocking the house with Spotify on your TiVo box,
