Legendary band's full back catalog available to stream only on Spotify, staking another claim to be king of the streaming game
Spotify continues to try and establish themselves as the biggest players in the streaming game, and their latest acquisition won't harm their chances. Following the addition of Metallica in late 2012, the streaming service can now add the complete works of Pink Floyd to their ever increasing catalog.
Other services -- including Google Play Music All Access -- do have some Pink Floyd available to stream, but Spotify takes the prize for being the first to offer it all. The 'unlocking' of the content came after they asked listeners to stream classic track "Wish You Were Here" to show their interest, and it clocked up 1 million listens just this weekend alone.
All of this is available to listen to free of charge using your desktop Spotify app, or the pretty sweet web app. Premium customers are really going to enjoy it though, as they have the capability to download every single sweet, sweet track to their Android devices to listen to on the go.
