Tech in Asia —- Long anticipated, Spotify launched in Indonesia today. The premium version of the streaming music service from Sweden is available to Indonesian listeners for IDR 49,000 a month, which amounts to US$3.74. That’s a sweet deal, considering people in the US pay US$9.99 and Europeans currently pay EUR 9.99 or US$11.28 for the premium service.
NEW YORK: Spotify is coming to the PlayStation, replacing Sony’s own Music Unlimited service, as the company continues to expand the game console into an entertainment hub beyond video games. Spotify hits the PlayStation 3 and 4 on Monday, with a new app adapted for large television screens. Sony says partnering with Spotify expands its music service to 41 countries, rather than the 19 available with Music Unlimited, and offers better tools for playlists and music discovery.
