Bang and Olufsen brings Spotify to BeoVision TV range

Luxury Danish brand Bang & Olufsen has announced that it is bringing the ever-popular Spotify music streaming service to its BeoPlay V1, BeoVision 11 and BeoVision 12 NG TV sets.

The update will also come with all TVs released from now on, with current owners able to download the update for free.

Users wishing to use this feature will need to be signed up to Spotify's premium subscription service, as is the case with Spotify on other AV products.

Once you're signed-up, songs and playlists can be controlled through the TV via the remote control.

Link to the new B&O wireless speakers and you will be able to stream high-quality music directly.

Tue Mantoni, CEO of B&O, says: "By integrating new features like Spotify to our existing products through a free software update, we support the long ownership cycle that is so characteristic of our products."

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
