Ever heard a really cool tune on your favourite Netflix show and would like to add it to your playlist? Spotify has got you covered on that front. The music-streaming platform has launched a hub where listeners can find music related to shows and films on Netflix.
This newly-launched hub is accessible to both free and premiums subscribers of the music-streaming platform. This means fans can find soundtracks from popular TV series such as Stranger Things, Squid Game, and La Casa de Papel, as well as movies.
Fans of Netflix-tied podcasts, such as ‘Okay’, ‘Netflix Is A Daily Joke’ and ‘The Crown: The Official Podcast’, will also get to listen to them on Spotify. The Swedish company said in a blog post:
Today’s trending shows and movies aren’t just inspiring fandoms, they’re also fuelling internet-wide obsessions. So much so that within two weeks of Squid Game’s debut on Netflix, Spotify listeners had created more than 22,500 unique themed playlists to keep the experience going. It’s clear that after the credits roll, viewers are left wanting even more—and they come to Spotify to hear it.
However, it's not available in all regions; only in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, and India. The company says the Netflix Hub will regularly be updated with new content, adding:
By simply searching “Netflix” on Spotify, you can find and sing along to the music behind some of your favourite Netflix shows—all in one place.
It is not clear when this content will become available to subscribers in the EU or other parts of the world.
The Netflix Hub is not the only experience of its kind on Spotify. The company launched the Disney Hub in 2019, which features music from popular Disney movies and TV shows.
The company is one of many that cashing in on the pandemic, as it saw a rise in premium subscribers in the third quarter.
