Sky Q customers are getting a new music feature coming to their set-top box.
The satellite TV company has announced that, from today, the popular Spotify app will be available via Sky Q.
This means anyone owning this latest Sky box will be able to gain access to millions of songs straight from their Q homepage.
Spotify is available for free or via a monthly £9.99 subscription with both account options available on Sky.
Speaking about the new feature Jorge Espinel, VP of Business Development, Spotify, said: “Spotify and Sky share a focus on innovation, disruption and delivering an excellent experience to our customers.
“We’re delighted that consumers in the UK and Ireland will soon have another means to listen to all the music and podcasts they love on Spotify via Sky Q.
“The partnership between Spotify and Sky will offer consumers the chance to enjoy great entertainment from two leading media brands, and we are excited for what the future of the partnership may bring.”
The arrival of Spotify is part of Sky’s next stage of product innovation which will offer customers an improved entertainment experience.
As well as Spotify, a new wide-screen user interface has been introduced today to enhance the ultimate viewing experience for Sky Q customers, enabling them to scroll through content suggestions within menu rails.
Sky Q will see further features introduced later this year, with greater personalisation based on viewing habits, extended voice functionality, the launch of HDR, a new kids mode – integrated with the kids app – and more be introduced to the service.
Along with Spotify launching today there’s another popular service coming soon.
Netflix has announced that it will be launching on the Sky platform later this year.
The video on-demand company revealed a new partnership with Sky, which will see Netflix’s catalogue of content, including its original series and movies, included in a brand-new Sky TV subscription pack.
The partnership deal will see millions of Sky Q customers able to access Netflix via their satellite set-top box.
Those who haven’t already got a Netflix subscription can add the new television bundle to their existing monthly Sky TV bill.
Subscribers will see Sky and Netflix content side-by-side for the first time in the redesigned Sky Q menu.
