European readers must be well aware of Spotify – a service that offers free ad-supported music streaming service in their geography. The company is learned to have been working on ways to expand their reach and be available outside Europe in places like United States for a long time. That has now become a reality now with the signing of a partnership between Spotify and Sony Music that will give the former access to all of Sony’s catalog of music in the United States. The terms of the deal are said to be pretty similar to what the company has in place in Europe.
Spotify is now expected to woo more labels and sign deals with them before they can finally launch in the American market. The negotiations are expected to consume a significant chunk of time in 2011. Nevertheless, once this is done, Spotify will finally be available for those of you in USA.
