Spotify Drops into Boxee Box by D-Link
If you haven't yet experienced Spotify, well, you really have to re-evaluate your commitment to music. Spotify is an incredibly on-demand streaming music service that is sweeping the nation, after having swept a lot of international consumers over the past few years. Spotify is incredibly cool, but it keeps getting better. It's taking on such software as Rhapsody and Pandora and honestly, while it's a different animal altogether, it's very compelling. Instead of being a relational, synthetic, adaptive Internet radio, Spotify grants you access to exactly the music you want, when you want it. Today, Spotify announced that the Boxee Box by D-Link is now making Spotify available on it's platform. Delivering playlists and enabling consumers to discover new tracks and artists from your TV, Spotify provides access to over 15 million tracks. With a premium Spotify account, Boxee Box users can now do even more:
- Stream playlists and tracks discovered on your computer or mobile device directly to your TV through Boxee Box
- Unlimited Listening, Zero ads – Premium subscribers pay no additional fees and are never interrupted by ads; just connect your account and you’re ready to go!
- Facebook is deeply integrated within Spotify; easily see what your friends are listening to, share your discoveries and listen to their top playlists

I doubt I could reliably tell the difference between a Spotify stream and the original CD.
As far as Facebook goes, I just click on 'Private Listening' and I'm not on FB.
Of course, YMMV
I have no need to re-evaluate my commitment to music, nor to **Link Removed do to noob status**. Until Spotify drops it's Facebook requirement it will stay on my avoid list.
I'm confused. What is the "Facebook requirement"? I use spotify premium (and really like it), but do not have a facebook account.
p.s.: Anesidora plugin [chromeunderground.blogspot.com] for google chrome makes Pandora even better
