In October last year Virgin Media teamed up with Spotify to bring customers streamed music services to their mobiles and on TiVo, and now this has been taken to another level with the launch of a new app which brings music fans the very latest album reviews and playlists expertly assembled by Virgin Media’s music editorial team.
The new app is available from the Spotify app finder at open.spotify.com/app/virginmedia, and is freely available to both customers and non-customers of Virgin Media.
The app allows users to download the very latest reviews and playlists from well known artists such and events such as the Virgin sponsored V Festival along with many others. With just a few of the major festivals yet to run, such as Reading, Leeds and the Bestival on the Isle of White, music fans will soon be facing festival nostalgia, but with this app they can easily relive their fondest 2012 festival memories.
Spotify gives users unrestricted access to a huge online music library that with many millions of tracks and albums; in total there are over 18 million tracks that music fans are able to access whenever and wherever they wish. The partnership between Virgin Media and Spotify means that Virgin Media customers can access Spotify on their televisions via the Virgin Media TiVo Service.
Since last October, Virgin Media customers have been able to enjoy three to six months inclusive Spotify Premium as part of selected broadband or mobile services as a result of the two companies’ pioneering partnership. In November, Virgin Media launched an exclusive Spotify service for its next generation TiVo service, giving customers the ability to enjoy their favourite party playlists straight through their TVs and home cinema systems. As a result of the Virgin Media and Spotify partnership customers are able to enjoy up to six months access to premium Spotify services.
The partnership has proven to be highly successful and the huge base of music fans amongst Virgin Media customers have enjoyed the latest tracks and albums from their favourite artists online, through TiVo and on mobile. The new app brings even more content and the very latest information and reviews on what is happening in today’s music scene as assembled by the Virgin Media music editorial team.
The Virgin media Spotify partnership is the only service in the UK to provide Spotify in combination with broadband and TV through its TiVo television service. Virgin Media customers can also stream Spotify services to their mobiles via 3G/HSDPA.
