Spotify comes to TV in second deal in Nordics

Spotify, the darling of the online music market, has expanded its presence in the Nordics through an exclusive deal with Finnish carrier TeliaSonera that will see the Spotify service deployed on a number of devices from mobile phones to TVs.

The deal builds on a similar agreement struck with Swedish operator Telia in October last year, with both Telia and TeliaSonera given exclusive rights to market and sell Spotify Premium in Sweden and Finland respectively.

The two year deal struck this week will see Spotify and TeliaSonera work together to provide a range of offerings on computers, mobile phones and TVs and comes as Finland’s Sonera launches a new IPTV service, Sonera Home TV.

Sonera Home TV will give around 1.6 million customers access to a range of free and pay TV channels as well as Spotify on the TV and a movie rental service.
