Entertainment Spotify South Africa launches only R60 per month for Premium
By Edward Swardt- 12 March 2018 0

Spotify, the world's largest music, podcast, and video streaming service was officially launched in Israel this afternoon at 4pm. In Israel, Spotify faces competition from global streaming services such as Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal, as well as local services offered by Israel-based cellular carriers. Based on the pricing of company stock traded on private markets, the company, launched in 2008 and headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, is valued at $23.4 billion.

Apple's streaming music service now enjoys 38 million paid subscribers, an increase of two million subscribers since the company last reported figures in February.

The service now has more than 159 million active users, in over 60 countries (most of Europe, most of the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Asia).

'Bookkeeper of Auschwitz' dies before starting sentence: Spiegel
He was in hospital when he died and had yet to begin his sentence, which was delayed due to ill health and legal red tape. German prosecutors deemed Groening to be fit enough to go to prison as long as there was appropriate medical care.

"With over 159 million active users, including over 71 million Spotify Premium subscribers, Spotify offers a choice between an ongoing free ad-supported music service and a fully-featured, ad-free subscription option", said the company.

Similar to rivals Apple Music and Deezer who already operate in Israel, Spotify will charge NIS 20 per month for a premium subscription.

ITWeb is attending the official launch on Tuesday and will provide more details as they become available.
