Music service Spotify comes to the second largest music market in the world
Music service Spotify, recently reporting 40 million paid subscribers, goes to the second largest music market in the world. We are talking about Japan.
The Japanese market is specific: there are still very popular write CDs and other media. Although the Japanese market is already submitted to other music services, Spotify will be the first major service, which will offer a free service, offset by showing ads. Subscribers can disable ads, but they will have to pay about $10 a month.
