Spotify And Boxee Let You Access Streaming Music Service From Your TV

Spotify and Boxee have teamed up to let you access the social music streaming service though your TV using the media center. The Boxee Box allows you to watch many of your favorite movies and shows that are online through your TV. The Spotify integration will now allow you to listen to your favorite music through Boxee too.
There is a caveat here, in that you’ll need to be a Premium Spotify subscriber to take advantage of the Spotify Boxee app. However, if you have signed up to the $9.99 per month Premium offering, you’ll be able to enjoy on-demand access to Spotify through your TV.

This follows on from Spotify’s partnership with Western Digital, which allows owners of the manufacturer’s WD TV series of media players to access Spotify on their TVs too.
Usage of Spotify soared following its removal of invites and the announcement at the f8 conference that it was one of the launch partners for Facebook‘s music dashboard. While linking Spotify to your Facebook account meant that the songs you listen to are automatically shared on the new ticker, the music streaming service added a feature that allows you to stop sharing this information with your Facebook friends.
