Spotify this morning announced that it has partnered with DVR and home entertainment company TiVo to bring the popular music streaming and discovery service to TiVo Premiere boxes in the United States.
TiVo customers will, however, need a Spotify Premium account ($9.99 per month) to stream music through their home theater system, as well as browse playlists, albums and artists, and search for related artists using the TiVo remote control.

Spotify is thus added to the catalogue of applications already offered through TiVo, which already includes Pandora, Rhapsody, Live365 and Music Choice. It also offers access to services like Hulu Plus, Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Instant Video.
In addition, TiVo customers can stream songs on their TV set by connecting to their PC or Mac music library.
If you’re not seeing the Spotify app in the ‘Music & Photos’ menu on your TiVo box just yet, fret not. It is expected to begin rolling out to customers in the next 24 hours, TiVo notes.
Spotify recently revealed that it has over 5 million paying subscribers (out of 20 million total active users), of which more than 1 million are in the United States.
