There was no official announcement, but Spotify went live in two more European countries yesterday morning: Ireland and Luxembourg. Both markets are getting standard Spotify pricing: a free ad-supported version of the service, a €4.99 Unlimited tier for web-only access, and €9.99 for the Premium tier including mobile and offline usage. The launches bring Spotify’s total countries to 17, with Poland and Mexico seemingly on the horizon, judging by the company’s recruitment site. Ireland is a particularly interesting market for a streaming music service like Spotify, given the debate around anti-piracy legislation and ISPs blocking access to filesharing sites like The Pirate Bay. It remains to be seen if one of those ISPs will strike a Virgin Media-esque bundling deal with Spotify.
