Spotify integrated into Starz mobile app

This deal allows Starz app subscribers to access Spotify music from its TV shows and movies. Listening to full tracks will require a Spotify Premium account, although freemium listeners can still hear 30-second clips within the Starz app. All users can save and follow Spotify playlists from inside the app. An individual’s listening habits will also be used as the basis for Starz video recommendations.

“Starz is thrilled to share plans to soon integrate Spotify’s industry-leading streaming audio capabilities into the Starz app,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, Starz COO. “Spotify integration will complement and fortify the STARZ app’s appeal for distributors and consumers alike.”
