Boxee users with a Spotify Premium subscribers ($9.99 per month) can now enjoy on-demand access to Spotify’s millions of available tracks directly on their TV.
Just last week, Spotify announced a deal with Western Digital to make its way onto television screens in the United States, and the partnership with Boxee is a sign that the company is further intensifying its efforts to make TV its third screen.
And boy has this Boxee deal been a long time coming.
I suspect that has something to do with the fact that Spotify wasn’t available in the United States before (they finally landed there on July 14, 2011). And according to Reuters, 250,000 users in the U.S. are already paying for the service.
