Spotify goes live in Germany this week
The streaming music subscription service that is Spotify will come to Germany on Tuesday, German media has reported. It will partner with the German version of Interview magazine and the Eventim festival guide. The price will be the same 10 euros (about $13) per month other European countries pay.
There will also presumably be a free, ad-supported option as well. The service offers about 16 million tracks and has about 10 million registered users in 13 countries, about a quarter of which are paying subscribers.
In Germany, it will face competition from Simfy, Rdio, and Deezer. Spotify is available for OS X and Windows computers as well as Android, iOS, Symbian, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry smartphones. [via TechCrunch]
