Spotify 'For Music' TV Ad: Emotive or Odd?

image

I saw an ad for Spotify the other night while I was watching the season premiere of NBC’s The Voice (So excited for this season! I don’t want to like Blake Sheldon, but I do). I thought to myself “Huh. I didn’t know Spotify was advertising on TV now!” After a little investigating, I found two more new Spotify ads on YouTube. This is a big move for the on-demand music service, and rumor has it that Spotify is planning to add video streaming to its existing music service to compete with Netflix and HBO. In light of that, the big-time marketing push makes sense. But that’s not what we’re here to talk about. Let’s dish about the ads, shall we?

T-Mobile, the only of the four major carriers not to offer the iPhone, has finally joined the club. At a media event today in New York City, the company announced it will begin selling the iPhone April 12 — but with a difference. Unlike the other carriers, which sell the iPhone for a subsidized price of $199 if one signs a two-year contract, T-Mobile is switching to only selling unsubsidized, contract-free phones. You make a $99.99 downpayment, and then pay $20 per month for two years to pay for your phone. That works out to a total cost of $580.
