Win Western Digital and Spotify Goodies

Western Digital® and Spotify® recently teamed up to offer the popular music service on WD’s equally popular media players. And to celebrate, they've collaborated with TrustedReviews to give away 5 x WD TV Live HD media players each with a 3 month Spotify Premium subscription.

All you’ve got to do to be in with a chance of winning is to head to the Western Digital facebook page and answer the multiple choice questions. The competition will finish on 19th of December.

Western Digital Spotify and TrustedReviews

We’ve reviewed several of the WD TV range over the years – from the original WD TV to the more recent WD TV Live Hub – and have consistently been impressed. They provide an easy one-stop solution for playing back all your multimedia files on your telly, with an intuitive interface easily navigated using the simple remote – just plug in the WD TV Live and away you go.

As the Spotify tie-in suggests, the latest WD TV Live models also include wired and wireless networking for accessing not only your own media from network storage, but third party services including Deezer, YouTube, Facebook, Dailymotion and now Spotify.

We’ve yet to review the latest WD TV Live model, but rest assured we’ll be taking a look just as soon as we can.

As for the Spotify side of the equation, you’ll need a Spotify Premium account to access the service, but for that £9.99 a month you get unlimited music streaming along with access from your mobile. The app will incorporate many of the standard Spotify features – including the ability to create and manage your playlists, easily share songs with Spotify friends, and see and subscribe to friends’ playlists via their Spotify profiles. You can also share tracks by sending songs directly to other Spotify users’ inboxes.

The competition is based on a points scoring system - the more you participate, the more points you accumulate.

Scoring system:

1. Answering the questionnaire (2 points per correct answer).

2. By inviting friends and having them join the competition (1 point per friend up to a cap of 20 points per contest).

3. By answering the question of the day which will be posted at a random time during the day. Only one participant can answer this question per day. The first one to answer it correctly gets 10 extra points.

So what are you waiting for? Follow that link and get answering!

What on earth do you mean? It's a competition, nothing more nothing less. Would you rather we didn't notify you of ways to get free stuff?

ah well I guess it doesn't matter how the winner is decided any more as the app won't load (it just goes to a weird basic text no html facebook page) :( oh well I really like the WD TV (been watching youtube vids about them for the past couple of months), maybe I'll treat myself to one one-day

I'm with Betelgus. I think this is an embarrassment to a once fine website that has been overrun with the need for adverts and (I would assume) lower visitors/comments. The competition isn't just a fill in a few details or answer a few questions (as suggested above the photo) but 'liking' in your facebook page, inviting friends and being very involved in the event. That TR can't see that this is sad :(.

You don't have to participate if you don't have to. It's as simple as that. We've run all sorts of competitions over the years with varying degrees of engagement. Yes, this one's a bit more involved but if you don't want to jump through the hoops, then don't. You're under no obligation to do anything beyond liking Western Digital and once the competition has ended you can unlike them.

@ed asking someone to jump through hoops is fine but here your asking people to hambug they're own friends,i wouldn't expect my friends to do this,as much as i wouldn't expect them to ask me. i can only compare it to phishing,it dosen't belong in a mature website entitled trusted.

Have to agree - giving away all your personal info (as you do when you like on fb) and stringing your friends in too... And a whole three months of spotify???? I would have expected a prize for a competition like this to be at least 10x full year subs or even something like 100x the three month trials (which effectively this is).

the Scoring System clearly says "No questions at weekends" yet there was one today (Saturday) what is going on?
