Highly- anticipated music service is now live on Sonos in the U.S.
Santa Barbara, CA - Thursday, July 14, 2011 -
Sonos, Inc., the leading manufacturer of wireless music systems, today announced that Spotify is now available in the U.S. for streaming to every room of the home, wirelessly, via the award-winning Sonos Multi-Room Music System. With a Premium Spotify account, Sonos customers can enjoy on-demand access to Spotify’s library of more than 13 million songs. To learn more about how Spotify works on Sonos, please visit www.sonos.com/Spotify.
Streaming music is changing the way in which music is experienced and it is radically changing the way music is experienced in the home. According to Sonos customer research, once a Sonos customer starts using a streaming music service, they listen to 5 times as much music in the home than they did with just their existing digital music library.
"The Spotify and Sonos partnership has been warmly received by music fans throughout Europe," said John MacFarlane, founder and CEO Sonos, Inc. "We are thrilled to work with Spotify to bring this ultimate music experience to Sonos fans in the U.S. while continuing our mission of connecting customers to all the music on earth."
"We are very excited to be bringing Spotify to the US, and to be working with partners such as Sonos towards our goal of making the all the world's music available for everyone to enjoy, whenever they want it and wherever they are." Ken Parks Chief Content Officer and Managing Director, Spotify, North America.
Enjoying Spotify in the home is simple on Sonos. Existing Sonos customers can add the Spotify service by subscribing online to Spotify Premium and then simply adding Spotify from the “More Music” menu of any controller.
