Spotify's quest for worldwide audio domination took a big step forward today, after LG announced it has inked a deal to integrate the streaming music service in a range of connected media devices launching later this year. Early adopters won't be the only ones able to enjoy Spotify's cornucopia of on-demand tunage, however. LG also said owners of select connected media players currently available on the market will be able to download the Spotify app starting this April.
Perhaps the most interesting development for Spotify is not music, though. The music streaming service is rumored be doubling-up on its offerings with on-demand video content, which could put it in direct competition with the likes of Netflix and Hulu. Spotify would have the advantage of an already established user base used to streaming media, so the company could offer a bundle of music and movies.
