World's largest streaming service Spotify launched in SA

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

The world's largest music streaming service has gone live in South Africa, a day before the company is due to hold a press conference to announce its local launch.

After this trial, the Premium tier costs 59.99 South African Rand a month - equivalent to around U.S. $5.

That suggests the company will need to use its clout to strike more lucrative deals in the coming years if it wants to turn a profit from a growing subscriber base as it battles Apple, Inc and Google. The number has grown from 36 million in February.

Spotify Free - R0 per month.

By comparison, with Apple Music's free version you'll get access to Apple Music's Connect features, where you are able to view and follow artists, but you won't be able to play, save or like posts. While, the Premium option features no adverts, offline listening, unlimited skips, high-quality audio and shuffle play.

The South African pricing is a significant discount to what Spotify users pay in the US. Called "the Netflix (NFLX) of magazines", Texture gives subscribers access to over 200 magazines for a monthly subscription fee of $9.99. Last week, Forbes reported that Spotify is expected to launch its service in South Africa as well.

The music streaming service allows music fans to discover and enjoy more than 35 million local and worldwide tracks, thousands of human-curated playlists for every mood and moment, and personalised music tailored to their own music tastes.
