Telenor Pakistan has become one of the first telcos to launch Spotify Premium in Pakistan. Through this collaboration, Telenor Pakistan customers will be able to subscribe to Spotify Premium through their Telenor Mobile balance.
The premium version offers ad-free music listening and allows access to many personalization features such as the ability to curate specialized playlists and browse through a wide catalogue of local and international songs. Subscribers also have access to content offline and the service works on computers, smartphones, tablets, television and has the ‘Spotify Connect’ feature as well.
Commenting on the development, Khurrum Ashfaque, COO Telenor Pakistan, said, “The launch of Spotify Premium is a much-awaited news for music enthusiasts around the country. With masses having limited online payment options, we are enabling ease of access to 47 million Telenor Pakistan customers to subscribe to Spotify using their mobile airtime.”
“Collaborating with Spotify to enable premium access has also furthered our ambition of bringing new and quality content to our local audiences and will also enable our local artists to tap into Spotify’s over 345 million listeners worldwide,” he added.
Spotify is the world’s most popular audio streaming subscription service, with 345 million monthly listeners.
