Spotify TV service launches in Sweden and Finland

Spotify has unveiled its music service on TVs across Sweden and Finland

In partnership with Nordic telecommunications company TeliaSonera, Spotify is making its music application available to Telia's 120,000 digital TV customers.

The TV app will be available to customers who have subscribed to the Spotify Premium service, giving them access to a streamlined version of the music application that can be used to access Spotify playlists on the TV screen.

"Introducing Spotify into the living room is a major step forward in our continued efforts to make Spotify available wherever you are", said Daniel Ek, CEO and founder of Spotify.

Last October, TeliaSonera signed a deal with Spotify to become the exclusive operator in Sweden to sell, market and assist in the development of Spotify.

Stefan Trampus, Manager Broadband Services at TeliaSonera, added: "Everybody loves music and even though many of us carry our favourite music with us, a lot of music consumption remains in the home. We believe that giving music fans the ability access Spotify directly through the TV and into the living room will attract even more users to the world's hottest music service."
