Spotify Brings Music Streaming to Denmark

Spotify launches in Denmark

The hugely popular music streaming service Spotify has expanded its European coverage with the launch of its service in Denmark. The company announced its expansion in a post on its blog earlier today, and users in Denmark can begin accessing the service immediately:

“We’re excited to let you know that today Spotify is crossing the Øresund and bringing a world of music to Denmark.

We’ll be offering three great services – from absolutely free to paid subscriptions.”

Just like those territories that already have access to the service, Denmark’s three-tiered price structure will include Spotify Free, Spotify Unlimited, and Spotify Premium. The first is ad-supported and means you’ll have to listen to adverts in between tracks, the second provides unlimited playback without ads, and the Premium option allows unlimited playback with access from smartphones and tablets, with “enhanced sound quality and access to exclusive content”

Spotify Unlimited will cost users in Denmark 49kr (approx. $9) per month, with the Premium plan priced at 99kr (approx. $18.30) per month.

Spotify’s launch in Denmark follows its expansion across the Atlantic back in July. Unlike U.S. users, however, those in Denmark can begin singing up and accessing the service today — they do not need an invite to get started.

Spotify will be hoping that it maintains the success of its U.S. launch, which saw over 1.4 million users sign up within the first month — 175,000 of which chose a paid subscription.

I’ve been using Spotify in the U.K. for well over a year now, and I highly recommend it. With access to 15 million songs on demand, it’s a must-have for music lovers, and it means you can save space on your smartphone and tablet by streaming your music as opposed to storing it locally.

Are you using Spotify yet?
