Great deals on musical instruments

Spotify has announced that it has signed a major deal with Virgin Media as the online music software company continues to diversify its operations.

The deal will allow Virgin users to stream music through a number of media devices including TVs, mobile phones and computers via the internet.

It is Spotify's first deal with an internet service provider and comes on the back of securing agreements with some of the biggest record companies in the world.

Andreas Liffgarden, director of business development at Spotify said that this partnership with Virgin Media meant that millions of people across the UK now have a chance to enjoy "all the world's music at their fingertips".

He added that this was a seminal moment as for the first time in the company's history users would be able to access the music streaming service through their TVs.

Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media, added: "Spotify will help our customers to fill their world with music, whether it's at home or on the go, and provide a unique way to get even more out of Virgin Media's leading digital services."

If rumours are true, this won't be the only service through which Spotify will be streaming its music.

Last month Facebook was said to be entering into a deal which would see Spotify services integrated into the social media website.
