Spotify has been busy this year, with their streaming music service showing up on Sonos systems, Onkyo home theater components, Integra AV receivers, and most recently, Facebook. Not stopping there, the company recently teamed up with Western Digital (WD) to bring Spotify to the new WD TV Live and WD TV Live Hub media players.
WD TV Live is a Wi-Fi enabled media player that delivers movies, TV shows, music and online services from companies like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Blockbuster, CinemaNow, YouTube, Facebook, and now Spotify, directly to your TV. The player can connect to the Internet wirelessly or through an Ethernet connection, with the 802.11n wireless connectivity supporting Full-HD 1080p video resolution.
WD TV Live supports a range of file formats for streaming content from a connected USB drive, digital camcorder or camera, network drive, personal cloud storage, and any networked PC or Mac computer in the home.
Subscribers to the Spotify Premium service will be able to access over 15 million tracks on their home entertainment system through the new WD TV Live streaming media player. Subscribers can also create and manage Spotify playlists, share songs to Spotify friends, and see and subscribe to friends’ playlists via their Spotify profiles. Users can also share tracks by sending songs directly to other Spotify users’ inbox.
The new WD TV Live streaming media player is available now for $99.99. Spotify is now available on the new WD TV Live player, as well as the WD TV Live Hub streaming media player, which features a built-in 1 TB hard drive.
